Introduction: IKEA Lamp Hacks for 2 IMacs

 I know there're USB lamps from LEDs for laptops, but I need one right over the screens.
so here are hacks for G4 iMac and a Intel.

... don't know exactly what model name this IKEA lamp is ... 

Step 1:

For the G4, unscrew the bottom plates & remount the lamps backwards.
Take the mounting plate & glue it to the iMac

I tried Velcro & double-side tape, but both are not strong enought.

Step 2:

For any G5, just bend the lamps until it's over the screen.  
Wrap some masking tape over the lamp arm before bending, so there won't be scratches.

Step 3:

Dry fit the mounting plates before gluing.
Idealy, lamp should be flush with the framing.

It would make more sense for the plate on the G5/intel iMacs to sit below the slot, hot air is expelled through that slot, so the air is restricted, and some glues way come unstuck with heat.
