How to turn your 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt display into an all-in-one Mac

“Just Mobile’s AluRack is a rear storage solution that makes it possible to hook a MacBook onto the back of an iMac or Thunderbolt Display,” Karen Haslam reports for Macworld UK. “”

“It’s compatible with the complete range of MacBooks, from the MacBook Air to the now discontinued 17in MacBook Pro,” Haslam reports. “You can hook it to the back of the latest iMacs, as well as older iMacs, Apple’s Cinema Display or the 27in Thunderbolt Display.”

Haslam reports, “There are a number of reasons why you might want to hide your laptop away. Perhaps you have limited desk space. Maybe you like to keep your desk tidy. Or just turning your Apple display into an all-in-one Mac might appeal. You would be giving up a second screen, and it is dependent on your owning an Apple display, however.”
