Hey there,

My new 27" i7 iMac will be delivered tomorrow!

My workplace has me use a Lenovo 410 Thinkpad which has Displayport slot (Lenovo - Laptop computers - ThinkPad T Series - Technical Specifications).

I am looking to use my iMac as a second display for the Leonovo 410 Thinkpad so when I work from home I can have an extended PC desktop etc.

I am under the impression that the 27" iMac supports Displayport input from external Displayport devices so what cable or adapters do I need to pull this off?

Brand recommendations and links to online vendors are appreciated as well!

Thanks

Even has a reviewer there using it for exactly this.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
