    Bought a new 17" Intel iMac, largely because it now supports my giant monitor.

    Tell me though, will I be able to set that as the primary display and keep the 17" screen as auxillary?

    if it works anything like a powerbook and second displays, it should. You just have to open displays in system prefs and under arrangement drag the menu bar from the top of the representation of the iMac display to the other display. I imagine its all a software thing rather than a hardware one, so it should work the same way.
