Is it possible to wall mount an iMac G5? Does anyone know of any websites that show this on display?

Thanks!

the only way you could wall mount an iMac G5 is to use a Vesa compliant stand with it so your best bet would be to take a look at the many many many different types of stands avilable that can be used with the Vesa mount for the iMac

finally hooked my imac up. not complete yet.
Wow that pretty sweet. What i would do thought to make it look nicer is send all the cords through the wall and have the come out on the ground or somewhere away from the computer. It just looks a bit funny seeing the cords hanging down.

Does that affect heat/ventillation at all?
I think the vents are on the bottom, so it shouldn't affect air flow for it to be mounted.

I'm trying to swing and iMac this year, though it might prove to be rather difficult with a baby on the way. ;) My wife says I need to sort out my priorities, I tell her I have. :D

If I am able to get an iMac then that's what I want to do with it, mount it on the wall. All wireless, feed the power cable through the wall. I really like the shelf idea too, I wasn't sure where I would put the keyboard/mouse.

The only problem being if you have a BT or wireless issue, or want to add a HD via FW or summit. how will you cope if the BT mouse/keyboard don't work or lose pairing (which can happen from time to time)? Will you have access to the ports or something?

Actually most of the heat comes out of a little slit in the back. I think the air is drawn in through the bottom.

I came up with an idea that I think would be really cool. It involves removing the existing foot and replacing it with a swivel arm that attachs or clamps to the desk. That way, it would be essentially floating and there would be nothing at all underneath it. The idea takes a bit from the old sunflower design and makes it new again.
