    Hey guys,

    I know the Vesa mount doesn't work with the new iMacs. Has anyone found anything else that would work instead?

    I'm looking to mount a new 27" on a wheeled stand. Preferably height adjustable too.

    Any ideas?

    I was looking for similar and the only thing I could find was the Rain design Igo mount which is plastciky and ugly.

    and

    it looks better in the video, but still urgh!

    Ive seen someone use a wheeled bedside table and that didnt look too bad.

    In the end, Ive decided to get one of these and put nice castors on the bottom somehow.. the smaller one .

    the new iMac mount is ugly as hell. its here: http://www.imacmount.com

    the stand would hang, it looks like a bodge job imho and i dont want that spoiling the look of my new imac ( if it ever arrives)

    If you find any cool space saving Imac solutions, be glad to hear them so please share :)

    Thanks for those. The video for the iGo stuff is cringeworthy.

    It looks like, for the effect I need, it will have to be Mac Mini with Cinema Display. Which is a shame as I will need to incorporate the box in somehow now...

    It's for a display going into a museum, so can't look like a bodge job... This would have been so much easier if they asked me to do it 6months ago... a well...

    What about buying the 2011 refurb version from Apple?

    I know the new iMac doesn't have a VESA compatible mount, but is there a way to remove the stand completely? If-so there's an opportunity for a 3rd party to design something that replaces the arm with their own mount. You'd need to be brave enough to open it up, but at least you'd have your mounted iMac.

    Looks like a property-designed mount could replace the existing one that's secured inside the case as shown here.
