Thanks, I hadn't thought about the weight of the cables (though I only have the power). I don't really want to cut it close, the problem is that if you look around for mounts the ones that I would consider using say that they support either 11Kgs or 12Kgs. This is close to the 11.4Kgs that Apple say the iMac weighs. I did ring a mount supplier, and they said that without the stand it weighs about 8 something, which I found hard to believe, so was trying to check out.Bear said:Use the weight with the stand. This allows for the drag weight of any cables you have plugged into the iMac. Besides, do you really want to cut it that close with a nice piece of equipment?
