I think calling it a "nice feature" is looking at this in a somewhat simplistic manor. For some of us it's a health issue. The non-adjustable monitor height shows a complete disregard for ergonomic design.

Until you've dealt with the health problems this lack of adjustability brings you may not appreciate why so many are unhappy with this change.

Someone needs to make one that replaces the iMac's stand. I wouldn't mind taking my imac apart to install a better looking vesa mount. Especially if the mount came with the tape to put the LCD back on.

Wow this just broke my heart. I just clicked complete order on my new imac, and now I fear I have to cancel. I need to be able to rotate my imac in free space to serve as a monitor for two different spaces. I have also gone to great lengths, and expenses to install a nice ergotron arm. FML I was really looking forward to a nice slim imac, and the fusion drive. Now back to debating refurb 2011, or 2012 mac mini, and a tb cinema display.

Pics of mounted iMac

There are pics of the older model mounted in this thread, I do not care for it, it looks odd.

I ordered it. I will post pics when I have it setup. Pretty bummed that I have to go for such a macguyver setup on a $2000 machine. I guess I will use the stand as a shelf for my dac, and hard drive.

Apple now offers a Pre-Configured VESA option. Or you could try this:
