    I'm going to be getting a new iMac and I really love my ACD so I'd like to use them together. I'm pretty sure I've seen this but I'm looking for a way to have the ACD vertical so I can use it for my dock and web page screen. I'm not looking for a wall mount. I'm not sure if it's an adaptor that I can use or a different stand.

    Thanks

    Exact question I have. A stand for the 20" cinema display so it can be vertical.

    Anyone? :)

    I am sure there are third-party 100mm x 100mm VESA-compliant monitor stands out there that rotate.

    So all you need is the ACD VESA Kit to mount it to them.

    Are you able to rotate screens in the display settings? I know you can in Windows, but I'm not sure about that in OS X.

    Monitor stand

    I recently bought the Humanscale M7 Dual TFT mount from Dell here in the UK (single monitor mounts are also available). It clamps at the back of the desk and it can rotate the monitor. I've currently got my Dell attached and am waiting for the ACD Vesa adaptor to attach my 23 inch ACD.

    I use Ergotron LX (I think "LX") mounts for my ACDs, about $125.

    I can move the monitors around, rotate from landscape to portrait, etc. Seemed stupidly expensive at the time, but I would not be able to live without them now.

    I would highly recommend them, and also recommend not saving the ~$50 to get the cheaper version. I have 23"s on mine and they do not strain or anything. I could not be happier.

    Original mounts?

    Hi digitalField,

    What kind of mounts are you using here? It looks like the original ones that ship with the Cinema Display, but can't figure out how you managed to rotate them :p
