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.
