    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, 15" Macbook Pro TB, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 6S, iPod Nano 7th Gen
    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 '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    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.
