Today I got a Power Mac G4 for free, from back in 2001. I'd love to get it up and running. Unfortunately, I didn't get a display to go along with it and I am basically clueless to what kind of display I would need. All I know is that they were meant to go with Apple Studio Displays. Could I use another computer as the display? Or do I need to buy an Apple Studio Display? Thanks!

You can use any display.

Being able to use any display sounds good. So I can't use another computer?

What do you mean, "use another computer as a display"?

You just need a computer monitor.
Plug it into the Mac and you should be good to go.

And congrats on the free mac!

Actually, a friend of mine just told me he had a spare monitor. That was lucky. Thanks for all of your help, guys!
