Transform Your Workspace: Standing Desks Benefit Apple Users’ Health

As an Apple aficionado, you may already be aware of the growing trend among tech enthusiasts to incorporate standing desks into their workspace. Perhaps you’ve been toying with the idea due to a nagging backache or a numb derriere after hours of sitting. If so, you are not alone. A sit stand desk could be the perfect solution to your woes, and many Apple fans swear by them.

In a recent Reddit post titled “Finally got a standing desk!”, user NiMa revealed his minimalist MacBook Pro setup featuring an affordable sit-stand desk. His setup included a 27-inch LG 4K monitor, a Logitech Stream Cam, and popular Logitech input devices — an MX mini keyboard and an MX Anywhere 3 wireless mouse. His cable management was so flawless that it left many Redditors in awe, with one asking, “How is there only one cable in sight?” NiMa’s response was simple: “Webcam connect to my monitor USB port and monitor connect to MacBook Pro through Thunderbolt USB-C. So It charges the laptop and I also can still use my webcam.”

The star of NiMa’s setup, however, was his standing desk. NiMa uses a Flexispot EB5, a brand known for its extensive range of models on Amazon. His desk is equipped with dual motors and offers three stages of standing. He described it as the “best bang for the buck,” having purchased it for 260€ [$281] (excluding the tabletop). While he admitted it may not be the most robust model on the market, he found it sufficiently sturdy for regular use.

The health benefits of an electric stand up desk are well-documented. Prolonged sitting has been likened to obesity and smoking in terms of its detrimental effects on health. However, incorporating regular exercise and frequent standing can mitigate these risks. This is why Apple Watch and its Fitness app encourage users to stand regularly, making it one of the three core activities (Move, Exercise, Stand).

Choosing the best standing desk for your needs requires some research. You’ll want a desk that doesn’t wobble when you type or move items around. For instance, Corsair, a gaming gear specialist, has recently unveiled its first standing desk designed for gaming and streaming. Although not yet available for sale, this model promises high customizability and a range of accessories.

For more guidance on how to choose the best standing desk, you might want to consult rating site Wirecutter. It offers top recommendations based on rigorous testing and reviews.

If you are proud of your Apple setup and want to share it with other enthusiasts, Cult of Mac is always open to featuring new setups. Just send some high-resolution pictures to info+setups@cultofmac.com along with a detailed list of your equipment. Share what you love or dislike about your setup and any unique elements or challenges you’ve faced. Plans for future additions are also welcome.

In conclusion, whether you’re grappling with back pain or simply looking to switch up your work routine, an electric height adjustable standing desk could be just what you need. Not only does it offer health benefits, but it also adds an element of versatility to your workspace. As an Apple fan, incorporating a standing desk into your setup could enhance both your productivity and your well-being.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
