    Hello, does anyone know of a good stand that would fit with the new 27 inch imac, and doesn't look butt uggly? I just want to increase the height by 15 cm or so.. Thanks!

    That would require 2 or 3 of those...

    OP, you could go for a VESA mount and arm, or a block of wood with the same color/finish as your desk.

    nothing easier than that, the original stand is alloy or? so just go to the next workshop who can weld alloy and get a piece welded in so you get the right hight and one extending the foot a bit more , if they do a good job and get the proportions right it will not tumble over due to the weight shift and you will never guess that it was not original like that

    everything else would look a bit stupid

    I sure wish they'd put a vesa mount on the new 21.5 coming my way soon. I have a 22" monitor mounted to the wall right over the top of my desk. I love it. That being said, the pedestal under my 17" imac is plenty high off my desk for my tastes. I just like the convenience of being able to position the monitor off an arm.

    Curious...can a Vesa mount turn the iMac 180 degrees? My desk is at the foot of my bed, and i want to know if i can turn it towards my bed, so i can watch my iMac while laying down?

    yes i have posted this vesa mount adapter in another post here on the forum , but if you only want to rais the hight it still leaves the stand hanging in the air than ok maybe you can utilize the stand then as a shelf for the keyboard



    and yes you can turn it even 360 degree if you fit a arm to the vesa mount

    Screw that. Too expensive. If I have to leave the pedestal on it, i think I'll just drill out four holes in the pedestal to mount the vesa arm onto. Problem solved.

    This is the VESA bracket I use for my 22" extension monitor. It has a 33 lb capacity and that should be plenty for a 17, 20 or 21.5 imac. For 20 bucks, ti's a good arm. If you don't mind drilling out 4 holes in your pedestal, it's a 20 dollar total solution. If you're adverse to that idea, the imacmount thing obviously works, but at a price.
