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.
