Can I use my old iMac as an external display?
I have an old 24" "broken down" imac, and i would use is it as an external display for my new 21,5" i5 imac. Is it possible with or without modding the imac to use it as an external display?
i know that it isnt possible to use the origional displayport.
any help is welcome
As far as hardware goes, no. The LCD in the iMac gets its signal via the display data cable from the logic board. You can, however, use it as a display using software.
Since the connection depends on your wireless network, display performance may vary greatly.
