Satechi’s new accessories are fantastic complements to the blue 24-inch iMac

I love my blue 24-inch iMac. It’s plenty powerful despite “only” having an M1 processor. Plus, it’s gorgeous to behold. Now my desktop looks even better thanks to Satechi‘s blue colorway for their iMac accessories.

The line-up consists of — shown on my desktop — a R1 Aluminium Hinge Holder Foldable Stand,  Dual-Sided Eco-Leather Deskmate, M1 Wireless Mouse, and USB-C Combo Hub for Desktop. Each is fantastic complementary accessory for the iMac.

The US$39.99 R1 Aluminum Hinge Holder Foldable Stand has a sleek, yet sturdy design featuring protective rubber grips that store and hold devices securely in place without slipping. Compatible with laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, the stand lets you position your devices in various positions for watching videos, gaming, video chatting or working on a tablet with a keyboard.

The foldable and compact design collapses to fit into a briefcase, backpack, or purse so users can take it anywhere at any time or store it away with ease.

The $29.99 M1 Wireless Mouse is a rechargeable mouse that sports an ergonomic design that works for both left- and right-hand users. It’s equipped with a Type-C recharging port, eliminating the need for batteries.

The M1’s wireless, Bluetooth (4.0) capabilities allow anyone to quickly and easily pair to other Bluetooth-enabled devices from up to 32 feet away.

The $34.99 USB-C Combo Hub for Desktop allows users to connect standard USB devices to any Type-C smartphone, tablet or laptop. Whether it is a USB thumb drive, external HDD or SD card, quickly transfer large files, download movies, or backup your computer with USB 3.0 speeds up to 5 Gbps. 

The hub has an SD card slot, micro SD card slot, there USB-A data ports, and a — as you might guess from the name — a USB-C connector. There are other hubs compatible with the 24-inch iMac, but none look as good as this on.

Note that 2.4Ghz wireless devices, such as wireless keyboard and mouse adapters, may not work near USB 3.0 devices or hubs. Connecting to a USB 2.0 port is recommended. The Satechi hub functions as a USB hub only, so don’t think of it as a standalone device charger.

The Dual-Sided Eco-Leather Deskmate features a reversible design with two modern colors. You can use it as a desk mat (which I do), writing blotter, eating mat, etc. 

Constructed with Polyurethane (PU) leather, the Deskmate is sturdy and water resistant. And at 23 x 12.2 inches, it can cover a lot of desktop.
