I’m about to replace an old Mac mini with a 24-inch M1 iMac. For the mini I use an Apple Cinema display I bought 300 years ago. The Cinema display can tilt forward a little bit, which works perfectly for the way I use it.
Does the iMac tilt forward at all? I can only find pictures of it tilted back or standing perfectly straight. I’m wondering if I’ll need to get the one with a VESA mount.
Very slight tilt. The picture top of the iMac is lined up with the picture. It is in full tilt position. Sorry for the slight angle.
Corrected my measurements --With the iMac facing me in flat position, the front top edge is 10" from the wall behind it. When I lean it forward it is 10.75". With the the front bottom edge at 10" from the wall, when I lean it forward the bottom is 9.75" from the wall. The screen from top to bottom is about 14-13/16". Maybe you or someone else can do the math and come up with an angle.
I know this doesn’t necessarily answer your question. But you can buy the VESA version of the iMac and it can move freely in all directions.
That’ll probably get the job done.
I appreciate the effort!
@ChrisUpchurch did the hard part.
I will always buy VESA iMacs. Did it last time and it adds so much versatility.
I was thinking about getting a VESA adapter for my iMac Pro, but looks like I’ve waited too long, and they aren’t available any more
Ugh. I hate eBay. I almost had one for $33+ shipping, but someone outbid at the last minute.
Another auction site I use extends auctions by 5 min when someone bids within the last 5 mins, and can go on indefinitely. eBay - Grrr.
Probably a divine message to retire it
I need it to keep my office warm in the winter
I thought that was what the lap cat was for.
Got one from an eBay vendor for $37+~10 shipping.
I like it. It always felt precarious perched on the Twelve South stand or the next stand I bought.
No option in System Preferences to rotate the screen though
