Apple updates iMacs with option for built-in VESA mount

updated 09:22 am EDT, Thu March 14, 2013

Compensates for earlier abandoned VESA support

Apple has added new versions of the iMac, with built-in VESA mount adapters, to its online store. The systems are identical in specifications to their counterparts released last year, except that they can now be mounted to a wall or ceiling in the same style as an HDTV. Apple is charging an extra $40 for the option, which removes the desk stand most iMacs are equipped with.

The 2012 iMac generated some complaints when it was discovered that it wouldn't fit into VESA mounts, as was possible with earlier generations of the computer. Apple responded by saying it was considering restoring support, but then went quiet, until today. VESA iMacs are currently shipping in 7 to 10 days in the US.

    Good move by Apple

    I have a 2010 27" iMac mounted on an Ergotron wall-mounted arm. I would hate to go back to a regular desk stand! The $40 up-charge is about what the older VESA mounts cost. Although, I have the option of going back to the desk stand someday (i.e. when I eventually sell the machine).

    aftermarket

    I'm sure someone will come out with a desktop stand for this iMac. I can think of endless options for unique stands.
