    What to do with an extra iMac
    I have now upgraded to my Mac Pro.... LOVE! And now the wife has my old macbook pro... so what to do with my old iMac.

    I am thinking of mounting in my daughters room to play her kid shows and so I can remotely watch the camera..

    Any ideas?

    It'll look better in my room. But don't even THINK about accessing that camera on me.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Some duct tape will clear that right up.

    Glad I didn't disappoint.

    Oh yes… as for mounting? You didn't mention which iMac, but some models do support VESA mounting brackets.
    Can you wall mount the Aluminum iMac models? Are they VESA compliant? @ EveryMac.com

    iMac Wall Mount

    Come on… you know that will look great in my bedroom. Wait… just how do you know what my bedroom looks like anyway?

    It is a 24" 2.4ghz, and it is wall mountable. The problem is that I live in cheap military housing, which is aluminium framed and the studs are a pain in the **** to find and drill. I would have to build a brace to support its wait. And an iMac would look great in any bedroom.
