I know that's where the speakers are but they are small so they won't affect the drive will they?
The drive has a 5mm thick metal casing and it looks tidy sitting there. It's not on the stand but to the left or right of it.
I've have a small drive sitting on the aluminum base of my iMac since I got it. Hasn't seemed to negatively affect it - and I know the data is still good too.
