New iMac as monitor for Windows PC?
so alot of different opinions is out there. My you can verify it for me?
Have a lenovo X230 "work pc" with a mini display port output. I need to hook it up to a monitor when im working in my "home office".
I would really like to grab one of the new imac's but i need to be sure if i can use the monitor.
I saw this link:
Can someone confirm that this can be done?

The only iMac this has a possibility of working with is the 2010 27" iMac. The 2011 and 2012 iMacs have Thunderbolt inputs only. Mini displayport connections won't work. There are some PC motherboards with built-in Thunderbolt controller connections, but so far, according to discussions in this forum, it appears that the iMac's Thunderbolt target display mode works with output from Macs only.

Maybe this could help get you in the right direction in seeing if the new models will support this somehow. Thunderbolt to hdmi?
