    I'm just wondering, is it possible to use one of the new iMacs as an external display for a Powermac? I was thinking, why spend 1300 for a 20 inch display, when you can pay only 600 more and make it useable as a standalone. That way, you could for instance set up your system so that you can either have one computer with two or three (extra Vid card) displays, or have 1 or two iMacs plus a powermac with a display for use with multiple people (ie Warcraft parties).

    Anyone know about this?
