    What is the height from the table or desktop to the bottom of the screen. Not the bottom of the IMAC, but the bottom of the screen/glass.

    Thanks!
    Jim

    Have you tried this really helpful website and scrolled down?

    http://www.apple.com/imac/specs.html

    Hint: look for size and weight

    This does not show me the height from the bottom of the stand to the bottom of the glass/screen.....it only shows overall height. This is why I posted here.

    As much as the sarcasm was welcomed - he did ask for just the screen portion. I.E - without the stand. So that "really helpful website" wasn't too helpful.

    Come on kids. You can work it out with a bit of pythagoras. Do you need me to tie your shoe laces for you as well?

    Geez - that's weird. I though forums like this were for asking questions and getting help. Seriously - your posts have been a BIG help.

    JimMacFan - to answer your question: The 27" screen is 17.9" tall without the stand. The total height is 20.5" I believe which would put the stand under 3 inches.

    You wouldn't use pythagoras: it's for right angled triangles, and the iMac isn't in the shape of a triangle; to find out the size of the stand, you would use estimated proportions, as you don't have any other data from that "helpful" website.

    I thought this was funny - when people try to outsmart someone and end up failing. Just like on YouTube:

    "Your dum." *Marked as spam*

    Then someone replies: "You're the dumb one. You can't spell 'your' or 'dum'."
    or, "Irony at its best."

    You know the screen is 27" diagonal, and you know the width, so the height of the screen is the third side of the triangle.

    Thanks for all the help everyone. But I am looking for an exact measurement from the table/desktop/base of stand to the bottom of the glass just where the gray aluminum meets the glass. I know its just under three inches from bottom of imac to desktop but dont know desktop to the glass.

    I hope someone with a 27" helps you out soon.

    I'm looking to buy a 2010 from the Refurb store tonight [early hours tomorrow] so may be able to help in a few days time if the answer is still outstanding.
