iMac 21.5" 2009-2011 VESA Mount adaptor
I have been the happy owner of a mid 2011 21.5" iMac and would love to have this computer mounted to the wall using a VESA mount. I always assumed this would be a straightforward using the kit that Apple sells. This unfortunately is not possible as many sources on the internet already mention. I have also found that there are a couple of mounts that you can attach to the stand and mount it to the wall. I for one am not a big fan of these add-on mounts and would like to create a solution.
My "solution" would be partially disassembling the computer in order to remove the stand and replace that stand with a custom part which can connect to a VESA wall mount.
I am therefore looking for someone who would happen to have a 21.5" iMac stand lying around of the 2009, 2010 or the 2011 model (OEM part # 922-9796 ) and would like to share its dimensions in order to replicate the stand to a VESA mount. Something like this for example: http://thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/m...
Using these dimensions, a CAD drawing can be made and have it machined somewhere. If the part fits, I would be happy to share the CAD design files.
I am aware that this might not be the easiest solution but I do believe that it will be a sleeker solution than the add-on VESA mounts.
Is this a good question?
