Apple iMac VESA Adapter Kit for Wall Mount System - VESA Bracket for Aluminum iMac 20 Inch

By Scott Powers

If you have been looking for a VESA adapter kit to mount your new aluminum iMac, but have not been able to find a solution, you are not alone. Thousands of iMac users, specifically with the later 17 inch and 20 inch G5, G5 w/iSight, iMac Intel and Core 2 Duo Intel, were left to figure out on their own how to attach their computers to VESA-compliant arms and wall mounting systems.

Now, Apple has introduced their new all-in-one iMac aluminum computers. They have discontinued the 17 inch model and offer a 20 inch and 24 inch version. I have had the pleasure of seeing the aluminum iMac and must say that Apple has once again created something spectacular. As with the previous model, the new 24 inch does have a VESA adapter kit available from Apple. But the more popular 20 inch model remains having a stand that was designed to be removed and any attempt to do so could result in voiding the warranty provided by Apple.

This is why I have created my iMac VESA Adapter Kit to retrofit to the stand of the iMac using the cable hole on the back. This way, there is no need to open or modify your computer. It is very simple to use, attaching and detaching quickly so you can easily move your computer to another area, or take it with you on your travels. Most customers do express to us they would prefer not to remove the stand because they purchased the iMac as a portable system.

The parts are manufactured in high-grade, aircraft aluminum steel and a durable powder-coat finish is applied to the adapter bracket. I wanted the adapter kit to be suitable for the elegant iMac, to look like a part of the computer, and I have accomplished this. The Kit provides the correct interface to attach the iMac to VESA-compliant mounting systems having the 100 x 100mm (4" x 4") hole pattern.

If you currently have the previous G5 or Intel iMac and wish to mount it, but are concerned about having to purchase a new adapter in the future, please know that I have designed this Adapter Kit to mount both models, and also the newer aluminum iMac. So rest assured that when you upgrade, the adapter kit will be ready.

If you are searching for a VESA Adapter Kit to mount your existing 17 inch or 20 inch Mac, including the aluminum iMac 20, your search is over! For more information, please visit my website.

Thank you!
