    This isn't a stream i'm on about - This is physically connecting the two to use the iMac as a glorified hdtv...

    Wowzers! They're expensive, but I'm actually quite impressed that it's possible on this model.

    We have a Mac graveyard at work, full of machines with amazing monitors but otherwise useless hardware. Nice to see that this model could at least be used for something else.

    I'm aware of that. If we replaced the 24" machines at work we would have to go for the larger screens considering the only other option is 21.5".

    You should get Applecare with all Macs, speak to your Apple reseller (or Apple themselves) regarding a discount for business purchases, too late now but it's really worth it.

    The hardware works, it's just useless for anything beyond casual web browsing
    It's just so sad seeing such fantastic quality screens being unused.
