    I've found that my 24" display just isn't big enough for the currents applications I'm using. Could I use the following to attach either a bigger monitor or my projector to the iMac?

    If you have one of the newer iMacs (updated this year), yes, you can use that adapter. There is also a miniDisplayPort to DVI adapter.

    If you have an older iMac (released before 2/2009), you have to use a miniDVI to VGA or DVI adapter.

    They are also available on the Online Apple Store.

    I think you can. It's what I'm aiming to do with my old monitor, though a 17" TFT looks rather tiny next to the iMac:p
