There are three models of Ergotech Freedom Arm available, depending on the weight of your monitor or the release date of your iMac.

If you own a monitor, the Ergotech Freedom Arm model will be determined by the weight of your monitor. Monitors weighing under 17.8 lbs are compatible with model FDM-PC-S01 and monitors weighing between 20 and 30.8 lbs are compatible with model FDM-HD-S01. Any size monitor within the weight range will be compatible with the Ergotech Freedom Arm.

If you own an iMac that was released before late 2012, your computer is compatible with model FDM-MAC-S01. If you bought an iMac after late 2012*, your computer is compatible with model FDM-HD-S01. However, your late 2012 and newer iMac must have the built-in VESA mount and not the stand. See the table below to decide which model is right for you.

Please note: This arm is not compatible with newer models that have the permanently attached stand. You must order your iMac from Apple with the pre-attached VESA mount for it to be compatible with the Ergotech Freedom Arm.

FDM-PC-S01 Monitors: 8.4 - 17.8 lbs
Mid-2014 iMac: 21.5'' display
FDM-HD-S01 Monitors: 20 - 30.8 lbs
Late 2012, Late 2013 iMacs: 27'' display
FDM-MAC-S01 Mid 2011 and older iMacs: 24'' & 27'' display
2011 Thunderbolt Display

*The late 2014, 27-inch iMac with retina 5K display is compatible with the Ergotech 7Flex Monitor Arm.



The Ergotech Freedom Arm comes standard with a clamp mount that attaches to the back of your desk and can be used with desks up to 2.5'' thick. It can also be ordered with a black grommet mount for mounting the arm using a grommet hole.
