    At work we purchased 2 iMacs because we planned on hiring another employee but decided not to. So now I have 1 iMac as a computer, and a $1,600 monitor :p. Since Xgrid isn't around anymore, is there a way to daisy chain these computers together to utilize the unused iMacs resources?

    Nope, that's why you needed Xgrid

    Unless your workload is abnormally heavy, it's unlikely you'll ever fully tax the resources of one iMac, so your proposal isn't likely to achieve anything useful. If you don't have a use for the 2nd computer, you'd probably get more value by selling it.
