    I thought the stand was built in, but now I see on the Apple Store they sell an "iMac G5 VESA Mount Adapter Kit." Just go to the store and click on "Apple Accessories" in the center-bottom of the page.

    So where do they describe how the stand comes off?

    And how long till we see photos of people with their wall-mounted iMac? :p

    I think that the stand is exactly like the ones on the Aluminum displays, if so, you can just use a hex wrench to undo the bolts that lock the stand to the display.

    The Vesa mount probably comes with the tool since the displays and iMac are Vesa compliant.

    what do you think?

    from the pictures, it looks like the stand for the new iMac is the SAME stand as for the displays. They are both aluminum and the same shape. I haven't seen the new iMac yet to confirm if the size and attactment shape are the same....can anyone tell me yes or no?

    Any that match the iMac look in particular, rather than the industrial black of Dell etc.
