    Is this possible??
    Hi,

    I would like to use my g5 (osX 10.3.9) simply as a monitor for my new macbook. Is this possible? If yes, how?

    Thanks,

    David

    You can't use the iMac as an external moniter for another computer.

    Actually it is kind of possible:

    But you can't just plug in your Macbook and have it act as a regular screen unless you buy additional hardware such as the elgato eyetv 250 that will act as an (analog) video input for your mac.
