    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OS10.12, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OS10.12 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    The 22" Cinema Display uses a proprietary ADC connector. The only way I know around that is to purchase an Apple ACD to DVI converter which is not cheap. I know they are $100 new. Check Ebay.

    Once you are at DVI you can hook that to the adapter from the iMac.

    I own that 22" Apple Display and that is what I ended up doing.

    Excellent! So, my Cinema is now an extended desktop?
    Once connected, will I be able to use my Cinema as an extension to my iMac desktop? Having the space of two displays to work on?
