    Hi there!

    So, I have an iMac of this variety (http://support.apple.com/kb/SP16) - 20", 2.4ghz. I was wondering if there was any way to make the 24" cinema display compatible?

    Thanks!

    Cinema display or LED cinema display? If it's the old cinema display with DVI, just buy a DVI cable. Both, iMac and old cinema display have DVI

    It's the LED display. Sorry for not specifying!

    Then it's impossible :( LED display can only be connected using DisplayPort which your iMac doesn't have.

    Dangit! :( Do the new iMacs allow for compatibility, or am I just stuck in general?

    The brand new models do work with the new 24" display.

    I know, but I think it works only other way around. If your computer has MiniDisplayPort and your monitor has DVI then it works. What I've hears, the only way to hook something to new LED display, is via DisplayPort

    For the OP, yes new iMacs have MiniDisplayPort, so you can hook 'em to LED display
