    Hi All,

    I'm looking at decluttering my desk and I think mounting my iMac on my wall maybe the way forward . . .

    Does anyone use the VESA Mount adpater on the iMac 24", if so do you have any pictures of it in use, any pro's or con's?

    Regards,

    Simon.

    There is 1 review of it in the Apple Store, albeit in the wrong section (Cenema Display mount).

    That is the iLift VESA Arm. It is a quality product that is very well built. I use two of them to rotate my 20" Cinema Displays into portrait mode which flank my 30" ACD. I couldn't be happier with my current setup.

    Here is a link to a review of the iLift (the same review that photo above came from). http://paulstamatiou.com/2007/02/26/review-ilift-vesa-arm

    Here is a link to the place I bought mine from. This was the lowest price I could find online. http://www.innovativeessentials.com/product_info.php?products_id=61

    There are two options available depending on the weight of your machine. Make sure you order the right one for your setup. This product is directly compatible with the VESA Mount adapter from Apple.

    I'm moving into student accommodation for my final year and I want a nice clean workspace to do my dissertation. I want to wall mount my 27" iMac.

    If I got the VESA Mount Kit:

    Can the wall mount be placed on any wall?

    Once taken down how do the holes in the wall look? (Hoping to get the deposit back :p)

    With the iMac being so heavy I'd suggest mounting it onto a solid brick wall.
    You'll be left with holes once removed though!
    I put a really nice picture on the wall after I left and never heard anything back! :D

    Hmmm I guess it'll have to be a white-tack and tip-ex job to cover up them holes then! I'll give it a go then, it'd be nice to have a nice spacious desk to work on.

    The wall might be a brick wall, i'm not sure because I don't move in until September, I know there's another room on the other side of it which leads me to believe it'll be plasterboard.
