    Hi, yes in a sense it will.

    You can go into system preferences, displays and in the Display button, there is an option to select to Rotation. This will allow you to rotate the output of the screen to different angles, including a portrait if you select 90 degrees.

    Otherwise, the display itself is fixed in landscape orientation physically.

    Hope this helps.

  • Yes, OSX and Windows 7 can rotate the desktop orientation.
    Unfortunatly there are no monitor arms that support a 27 inch physically rotating.

    I am looking for one so I can setup 3 apple cinema displays rotated.

  • This is correct:)

    Also the other post is incorrect. If you get an arm that moves in three directions.

    Check out the ergotron lx arms on amazon looks amazing. Spent 30 minutes reading reviews and im ordering:)

    Make sure this is compatible with your monitor setup:)
