    I have an old G4 iMac , the lamp, with a 700 mhz processor and a 15" screen. My wife was using it but now we have traded.

    My question is: can I output through the mini video output to my 19" monitor? Would it extend the desktop?

    Sadly you can only mirror your onboard display on that iMac.

    Presentations, display to a TV etc.

    The iMac was aimed at the education market where teachers need to guide students via an overhead projector or TV.
