    All the iMac mounts I find have arms and such. What about a mount that mounts flat against the wall like flat tv's? I can't find any searching...:rolleyes:

    Just get the VESA adapter that apple sells. As long as you have the 24" or 27" iMac, you can attach that to your iMac. If you don't have one of those models, then touch luck. The 20" and 21" models don't support wall mounts.

    After you get the VESA adapter, you can get any standard VESA wall mount. But make sure it is strong enough to hold the weight of your iMac.

    once you fitted the vesa mount adapter you just need a ordinary wall mount for a TV (these scaffolding type things for example ), but they all offer the holes for vesa mounting , you only have to watch the weight limits carefully as some are only designed for 19 inch lcd tv's which weight half of a iMac , others are designed to hold a 100" plasma tv , so just type in google vesa wall mount and you find lots of them

    but not to close to the wall ,you NEED circulation of air between wall and iMac if you got a aluminium iMac

    ok, so 24" or 27" only, get a VESA mount and those can attach to standard TV wall mounts, taking into account weight of course.


    Thanks
