I like having my MOJO stand vertically, anyone else?
Not because it gets hot, I think it looks cool, like a mini PS2... probably just habit with consoles

It looks great vertical. Does it stand well? Or do we need a custom stand?

Stands very well, the top/bottom edges run parallel and straight to the front, so very stable on a flat surface, no stand required.
I like having the cable at the top and it doesn't tip over.
I'm sure someone can do better photos

Edit: added photos
It's like I'm a monkey from "2001 a Space Odyssey" and the MOJO is evil the Black Monolith!

Doesn't it cover some vents when it is upright? I'm not at home to look at mine.

Didn't the black monolith speed up human evolution? So it's not evil per se, and if it improves your life in any way an apt comparison

Maybe, but the vents are more decorative as it is fanless is it not? The device is supposed to consume up to 4.5watts max under heavy gaming, 3.5 during HD vide playback, and less doing other stuff. I doubt overheating is a huge issue.

It's fanless, it does cover the side vent (which is the bottom now) but it's raised of the bottom just like the bottom is raise of the bottom.
Also don't forget the actual bottom also has large vents, which is now on the side... the not so pretty side
It's been warm, but never hot.

Yeah, thatīs one of the much touted advantages of ARM designs, no need for fans

I can only think of two which have fans: the Odroid XU board and the Nvidia Shield (but the shield has both batteries, which generate extra heat, and a higher clocked CPU and GPU).
