    I would like to know if I can put a VESA mount on the back and remove the stand.
    May not be a 2018 iMac, But it is the most recent release.
    Thanks!

    You'd have to totally disassemble the inside of the computer to remove the stand and somehow get Apple's VESA mount parts and install them. If you don't already have the computer you can buy one that's already set up for VESA direct from Apple.
