Does your late 2012 iMac feel like hanging around instead of sitting on a desk like an average computer? Apple's online store now makes it possible, but you'll need to pay a $40 premium when you buy the new computer.
As first noted by AppleInsider, the Apple Online Store is now offering Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) compatibility for its latest all-in-one iMac, available for an extra $40 when you purchase either a 21.5-inch or 27-inch model without the traditional stand.
"The iMac with Built-in VESA Mount Adapter is ready to pair with your favorite VESA-compatible wall mount, desk mount, or articulating arm (sold separately)," Apple's online store explains. "This iMac doesn't include a stand, so a mount is required. If you don't already have a mount, you can purchase one when you configure your iMac."
When the latest iMacs were first introduced back in October, it became clear that standard VESA mounts could not be used with them. Worse yet, Apple was cagey about its plans for supporting such mounts.
While Apple isn't making it easy to find on the online store, the iMac with Built-in VESA Mount Adapter models are now available for an extra $40, with ship times currently at seven to 10 days.
