Apple's New iMacs Are Not Wall Mountable

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new 2012 iMacs are no doubt gorgeous, slim and powerful but there are some points that make this device not for everyone; for example, the iMac has received a mere 3 out 10 reparability score from iFixit, and the RAM is extremely hard to replace. These points prevent users from repairing their own iMacs, and all these just to make the iMac a little more slimmer.

MacTrast has reported that Apple’s 2012 iMac cannot be mounted according to a confirmation received from Apple. The new iMacs do not support VESA mounting of any kind, making it impossible to use them with any mounting solution.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has always supported VESA mounting on its iMacs and Thunderbolt displays, but Apple’s decision of excluding the mounting options on the new 2012 iMacs will surely come as a disappoinment to many users. This also means that businesses won’t be able to mount the iMac for display or kiosk purposes.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is surely thinking too much about design and making its devices slimmer and beautiful. It seems that the company is choosing form over function, and not to mention that iMac users who want to mount their devices will be disappointed.
