Picture of IKEA Lamp Hacks for 2 IMacs

 I know there're USB lamps from LEDs for laptops, but I need one right over the screens.

... don't know exactly what model name this IKEA lamp is ...

I tried Velcro & double-side tape, but both are not strong enought.

Step 2:

Dry fit the mounting plates before gluing.

It would make more sense for the plate on the G5/intel iMacs to sit below the slot, hot air is expelled through that slot, so the air is restricted, and some glues way come unstuck with heat.
