Can I link an Apple Cinema Display to my new iMac
 
About to purchase iMac but need to know if I can connect my current 22" Apple Cinema Display.

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?

Yes you will.
