Don't rest your monitor on magazines, books and bricks - it's an accident waiting to happen. Turn your 17-inch Dell into a design feature with the Humanscale M2 Monitor Arm, which has triumphed at the 2010 International Design Excellence Awards.
Beating over 1800 design entrants from 29 countries the M2's spring-loaded, 99 per cent recyclable poised frame won a Bronze award in the commercial and industrial products category, thanks to looking like it could be Ellen Ripley's choice of monitor stand.
And don't worry about wearing out its springs and joints playing with it while seeking out the ultimate in internet viewing positions - Humanscale offers a 15-year warranty on the thing, should it start getting arthritic. [Humanscale via Core77]
