    With the iMac Pro now available to order, Apple has released a VESA mount adapter kit for the computer on its online store around the world.

    The kit comes with everything you need to replace your iMac Pro stand with a mounting bracket, which lets you attach your iMac Pro to any VESA-compatible wall mount, desk mount, or articulating arm to customize your workspace.
    The kit is priced at $79 in the United States and is currently estimated to ship in 2-3 weeks, so deliveries should begin in January.

    While ordering the iMac Pro on Apple's online store, the kit can also be added for $79 as part of a custom configuration.

    I'm glad they're selling this as a kit.

    They should do this for the other iMac models too. Having to buy the machine with the VESA mount and no option to turn it back into having a stand REALLY hurts resale value.

    It's great that they are selling this VESA kit. Sometimes, though, the Apple premium pricing on everything they put out is exhausting.

    Is $79 that bad on a $5K minimum machine?

    I suppose that's how they get away with it. Anything seems cheap when you're already spending $5k-$13k. What's another $79 here or there?

    So now you can wall-mount the fastest Mac and use it to watch Netflix!

    (yeah, I know VESA has other uses.)

    I recall posting in the first thread early this week about the ventilation ...

    Now with a Wall-Mount and the iMac Pro right up against a wall (potentially not in all use cases) I still see this ventilation being an issue over the long term use.

    Who's buying one?!

    I always though Jobs and Ive failed with ergonomics with the old round iPhone earbuds, and the sunflower design of the iMac. Looks great as an object in a room, but after a string of 16 hr days the lack of vertical adjustment was just BS. We’ve always stacked half a foot of books under ours. Pleased to see a solution finally.

    this is considered a DIY upgrade? looks to me like you'd have to disassemble the iMac to install it.
