    I currently have an older(2009) Mac Mini and will be getting a new Mac soon. I'm thinking of getting an iMac but would still like to keep my Mac Mini close by.

    Can I use the iMac as a monitor for the Mac Mini? This way I can switch between the 2 computers.

    As I know the 2017 iMac doesn’t have target display mode.

    They removed that functionality with the introduction of the first retina iMac. I'm hoping it comes back soon but I don't think so...

    Depending on what you want to do on the Mini..."Screen Sharing" on the local network might be adequate.
