    Second Display in iMac 27"
    I just ordered a new iMac 27" and have a spare 24" Mac display. What do I need to use the 24" as a second display, if possible?

    Thanks from a recent PC to Mac convert and my first post here.

    MacBook 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo | 1GB RAM | OS X 10.6.3 | 250GB External HD | 8GB iPod Touch 1st Gen 3.1.3
    Is this a 24" iMac or the 24" Cinema Display?

    The second display is the 24" Cinema Display.

    Use the Mini Display Port
    As seen on apple.com/displays all you'd have to do is plug the Mini Display port into you're iMac's display port, and if you want the 3 USB ports, attach the USB cable from the display into the iMac. You won't need the power port, that's only necessary for the MacBooks. I hope this is of some usefulness? Also, I'm assuming this is the current generation of Apple display.

    Thanks for the reply and answer and I feel a little stupid that I even asked the question. I have the 24" plugged into my MBP. Thanks again. Looking forward yo getting the new iMac 27"
