It does fit just fine, but I can see why it might seem like it doesn't fit.

    This adapter kit contains two pieces: a flange that attaches to a stub inside the monitor/iMac, and an adapter plate that attaches This adapter kit contains two pieces: a flange that attaches to a stub inside the monitor/iMac, and an adapter plate that attaches to that flange (the adapter plate is the only part pictured in the its description).

    A single Torx fastener driven through the adapter plate is actually responsible for aligning the whole assembly. It carries lots of strain and requires significant torque to install completely. If you try to torque the fastener by hand, you will strip the head. A high-torque screwdriver with Torx head is a requirement.

It should be no surprise to anyone that follows Apple that this is a well designed product. While installing it I was struck at how much thought went into it and how well it was built.

    The installation was very smooth and painless. If you have trouble getting the holes on the sides of the flange to line up read the instructions, you have to tighten the center bolt on the adapter very tight in order to bring the plate down enough to line up the holes.

(this is really tight) Then fasten the screws in the top of the mount adapter and do this really tight: this lines up the holes of the flange with the bolts on the side. It took me 2 hours to find out : I solved it by carefully reading reviews : it was the one from Oakland W that solved it for me

    Holly cow was it difficult to get the side bolts aligned so that they could be screwed in. The small lever arm of the monitor was Holly cow was it difficult to get the side bolts aligned so that they could be screwed in. The small lever arm of the monitor was recessed a millimeter or two too much and would not allow for the side bolts to be screwed in. I finally made it work after about 2 hours. I placed a few business cards under the lever arm to prop it up and allow proper alignment of the side bolts. Looks like this product needs a bit of tweaking! Once installed the mount works as advertised.

The only way to get a mount on this computer is to order it with the mount pre-installed. The tech I talked to on the phone and the "genius" at the Apple store didn't know this. It was only after Googling that we discovered this information. Had to return the mount and iMac and reorder the with a mount pre-installed.
