    It seems as if there is never any vesa mount versions of the imac in the refurbished store. is there any way to pay the 40 dollars and opt in for the vesa version in the refurbished store?

    Not that I know of, but I'm pretty sure that you can buy this and install it yourself :)

    Apple VESA Mounting Kit

    Installation tutorial

    A little extra work, but well worth the money you save on the refurb IMO.

    thanks but that mount doesnt work on the new late 2012 imacs. only 2011 and below. you can only get the special mount from apple on the new imacs.

    Ah, makes sense! Sorry I couldn't help you out, then. I haven't seen any refurb VESA versions...

    I dont think its possible, but if it was me i would give them a call and see if they can help you out. They might be able to rip the stand of a refurb that you want - if its possible.
