Hiya, I'm new to the forums so thanks for any help in advance!
English isn't my first language so please be gentle ;p

I'm currently debating whether I will buy an iMac or a 27"Apple display with a macbook pro. I have a couple of questions:

1. What is the estimated lifetime of (just) a display or monitor? Is it longer than the iMacs?
2. If computerhardware breaks in the iMac, could the iMac still serve as a display for my macbook pro?

Thanks in Advance!

Kevin
