I've got an intel 17" imac... I't may seem like an odd request but is there any way I can use the screen for another computer...? I would like to run 2 computers and if there was only 1 screen space would be sweet - any ideas?

I don't really think there is a way without completely rewiring the machine.

Simple answer: No, unless you have some really good soldering skills, can find out the pinout of the internal screen connector, and somehow drill a hole in the iMac to put a connector on it.

BTW, this is also one of theose questions that have been asked and answered many times...use the search function of this forum, it really works as expected! :cool:
