Is it possible to hook a 2nd monitor up to a 21.5 imac?
Yes, via the MDP interface:
Most common video interfaces on external computer displays and TVs
Common video interfaces on Macs and the appropriate adapters to connect to other display devices
I specifically bought the 21.5" because I wanted a dual monitor setup and I already had a 22" HP monitor which works well with my iMac.
I have the MDP to DVI connector and it works quite well. The only problem is when coming out of sleep it takes a bit longer than I would like for the HP monitor to come back on and sometimes whatever windows were open on it get bumped back to the iMac screen. Just means I have to drag the window back over which is not too much of a drag... (Pun intended).
Here is what my setup looks like...
