    Can this be done with an Imac 27"
    Hi

    I recently bought a Imac 27 Inch I7. I love it. I also have a Dell rig that I use for gaming, and my odd pc task.

    What I would like to do is to be able to use the Imac's 27 monitor, as a monitor for the Dell as well. I simply do not have enough room on my desk for two monitors.

    Is this possible?, if it is how can I make it happen?

    Specs:
    27" i7 iMac, 24" iMac, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 5 & 5S, iPod Nano 7th Gen, iPad 2 16GB WiFi, iPad 3
    No not possible yet..the iMac only accepts connections from other devices over the displayport and that's pretty much restricted to other Mac's right now..

    Regards

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    Depends on the Dell. Does it's current video card have displayport out?

    Is it an upgradeable model with an available slot for an add-in video card that has a displayport out?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
