What i have now (which is really podunk) is shown in the attachment below.
Can anyone recommend a monitor that will match in height and appearance? thx!
Machine: Late 2012 iMac
Since you want a monitor that will match in height and appearance your only option is to purchase another 2012 iMac and use it in target display mode.
ha, that would be overkill. okay, match-ish then. as close as possible. something better than my current solution thx.
but you will find nothing closer.
thx again. Surprising... but i can't seem to see anything from this end either. The philips IPS i am using on top of the fruit bowl is 1/5th the cost of a TB display. Maybe something like that, but with an adjustable stand to match the height of the iMac... hmmm
Get a tabletop-mount adjustable VESA arm for your Philips. It won't look like your Mac, but you'll be able to position it where you want.
Nothing a Sawz-All, an aluminum plate, and some two-part epoxy couldn't fix!
