    I have a 24-inch iMac that is ripe for replacement; my wife barely uses a 2010 15" MacBook Pro.

    In 2011 I'm thinking of buying a MacBook Air for her and I take the MBP.
    -I would buy a 27-inch display for the MBP;
    -ideally she could use the 24-inch as external display for the MacBook Air
    -or, alternatively, I would use the 24-inch as external display for the MBP

    Would any of these solutions work?

    the 24" iMac does not have video in.
    You would have to use something like screen recycler or
    one of the Elgato eyetv devices.
