Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Yes you can, you can use the other imac as a screen using the thunderbolt and display port.

It's on YouTube as part of a review and was pretty impressed by it tbh. ;)

But not sure if screen will still work as display if other components are knacked though :/


I just Googled it and apparently you cannot use it as an external display unless it can still boot to OSX, meaning that the display will be entirely useless once the thing cannot boot to OSX any longer, plus it's a horrible waste of electricity to have to run two computers simultaneously just to use one as a display.

In other words my point stands: it's a waste of resources and contributes to the e-junk problem. But alas, I am apparently the only one here who cares.
