    According to the specs on the Apple site, the depth of the iMac 27" is 8.15 inches (20.7 cm). I assume this is including the foot? Could someone measure the total depth of the 27", from the front to the back including the foot? So the full depth, just to be sure?

    My desk (Ikea Galant) has a depth of 31.5 inches (80 cm), so it's not that deep, and it's setup against a wall. I'd like to know how this monster iMac would look on it, and if my face isn't going to be too close to the screen (now about 25 to 30 inches).

    Of course the 8.15" includes the foot. Did you think the iMac was that thick?

    Heh, no obviously not :) But maybe that's a rather arbitrary number based on how you set it up or pivot it. But if it's the full depth, that would be nice.

    This is what I mean with different ways to measure the depth:


    I assume it's from black-to-black; just checking though :) .

    With my 27" fully tilted back (display facing the ceiling) it's about 10.5 inched from the back of the foot, to the outer most edge of the screen.

    From your colors that measurement would be from the red line on the back, to the red line on the front.

    With it at a more normal angle, the screen is within the range of the area that the foot takes up.
