The new iMac M1 is super slim and looks fabulous, but what if you want to mount it to a monitor arm so you can adjust the height and viewing angle? That is what the Allcam iMac VESA adapter is all about.
The Allcam IMAD03 adapter mounts to the stand of the Apple iMac M1 computer, and it can then be mounted to a VESA-compatible LCD monitor arm. Now you can enjoy the advantages and benefits of a monitor arm: adjust the height suitable for your sitting or standing position.
How to mount a 24″ iMac M1 to a monitor arm stand?
The short answer is you need a VESA mount adapter like the Allcam IMAD03 highlighted on this page. The next steps are simple and straightforward, as below:
- Mount the adapter to the stand of your iMac M1 via the cable hole in the middle, this effectively adds 2 sets of mounting holes to the iMac M1 (VESA 100×100 and VESA 75×75)
- Now mount the iMac M1 to a monitor arm as if it is an LCD monitor.
For the best result, we recommend you use the Allcam GU70-series gas spring monitor arm (shown in the image above).
Why should I use a monitor arm for an iMac M1? What’s wrong with its built-in stand?
A monitor arm will allow you to set the monitor to your comfortable position, such as the height, depth, and viewing angle. It helps improve your posture and reduce eye strain, back, and neck pain. According to the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, companies must ensure their staff working with computers have the proper display equipment suitable for their working positions and eye levels, which can normally be addressed by a monitor arm, especially a gas spring arm.
An iMac M1 computer is certainly a DSE, when standing on its own its height is clearly NOT suitable for everyone. People have different heights and they sit on different chairs. The adaptation of sit-stand desks further complicates the situation, because the same person will need to set the display at different heights depending if he/she is sitting or standing.
The Allcam iMac M1 VESA mount adapters are brand new and come with a 5-year warranty.
