    I mac late 2009 screen query
    I have a late 2009 27 inch Imac, I was wondering how does the screen compare to recent 27 inch imac in terms of quality? (brightness, contrast ratio etc)

    Whats the screens lifespan like? I heard some things about a yellow tint that appears and gets worse, not sure if this is something to consider. Also I was considering using it as a monitor for another computer (a PC) using target mode, is this a viable option, does using it as a monitor effect the response time relative to the other computer? Also what cable is required to make it work, i have a display port output on my PC but I don't think its a mini display port not sure how to connect them?

    Hope someone can help, big thanks in advance!

    If you are going to use the iMac simply as a monitor ~ just buy a monitor at about 25% of the cost of a new iMac. If using as an iMac there is a big improvement on the current model over the 2009.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I was just thinking of whether its worth using my 2009 Imac as a monitor for a pc or buying a new monitor for a pc, not sure how a 2009 I mac screen would compare to monitors around 300-400 mark
