Can you use a non-thunderbolt 27" ACD as a second monitor w/27" iMac?

    Is anyone currently running a set up like this? Can it be done? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Assuming the ACD in question has a minidisplayport connector, yes you can do this.

    If it doesn't then you'll need some way to convert from mDP to whatever the display is using.

    Yes, it's the current general model of Apple display, though not with Thunderbolt.

    Yes, that'll work fine.
