    Can anyone who has the new 27" iMac please let me know what the dimensions of the ACTUAL computer is. I want to wall mount the computer with a vesa adapter and need to know the height, width, and depth of the computer measured without the stand (which I will remove). These specs don't seem to be posted anywhere online or by a quick forum search. Maybe someone could just pull out a ruler to their computer...

    Also, if someone knows the distance from the bottom of the unit to the beginning the display area (4") as well as how large the border (1"?) around the display area is, that would also be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Do the measurements on Apple's website not suffice? http://www.apple.com/imac/specs.html ... the distance from my desk to the bottom of the chin is about 2.5 inches, which subtracting from Apple's 20.4 inch measurement makes the iMac itself about 17.9 inches long on its side.

    The length from the bottom of the chin to the bottom of the screen is about 3 and 3/8ths inches. The black border is about 1 and 1/16th inches.

    *The chin itself is about 2 and 5/16ths inches

    I don't know what you plan to do with it, but keep in mind that bottom and top have to be well ventilated.

    Those specs are not really what I'm going for. I made an image with the numbers I need from A, B, C and D.

    Right, and from my measurements:
    A = 3 and 3/8ths inches (measured)
    B = 1 and 1/16th inches (measured)
    C = 2 and 5/16th inches (measured)
    D = 17.9 inches (which was calculated by measuring the distance from my desk to the bottom of the iMac, then subtracting that number from Apple's own measurements)

    But let's get some other opinions (I did it fairly quickly and with a standard 12in ruler)

    I just measured mine with a tape measure.

    A = 3 3/8" (B + C)
    B = 1"
    C = 2 3/8"
    D = 17 5/8"
