    Hey,
    I got an iMac g5, I was wondering if there is any way to buy another screen so I can have dual screens...

    Thanks in advance :)

    Offically the iMac can only mirror it's display. There is a firmware hack to change this though - but it sounds risky and it will void your warranty. I don't know if you would really want to do it. Here is the link anyway though, it might not even work on your model but it's something to look into.

    If you don't really need dual displays I wouldn't do it. Also to add another display you need to get the mini-vga adapters from the Apple store, you can get a Mini-VGA to VGA, or Mini-VGA to S-Video/Composite - both are $19 each.

    the adapter would be a VGA cable out to an VGA screen i think and to do the screen span you might need a hack like the iBook

    EDIT : limeibook86 beat me to it lol

    I had the Power Mac G3 in the corner. I sometimes needed to plug the display in to work on it.
