Hi there,

I have a macbook pro and have just got myself an 24' imac. The imac is the one where there is no tower, the hardware is in the back of the screen - im sure you all know the one.

My question is - is there anyway that i can use the imac 24' screen as a second monitor when using my macbook?
QUOTE Thanks

No because the 24" iMac has no "video in" port...but you can definitely use a 2nd monitor (external monitor) with your MacBook with the proper adapter.
