The new Mid 2011 27" iMac requires Thunderbolt for input in order to be used as a display. (It has two Thunderbolt ports) The 21.5" model only has one Thunderbolt port. Your HP does not have a Thunderbolt output. However, the 2010 iMac 27" has two mini display ports of which one can be used for input. That model would be compatible with your HP.

As a side note here.... The Thunderbolt port is supposed to be backwards compatible with the mini display port, however, it remains to be seen if it would work that way for use as a monitor.
