    I'm wondering if it's possible to play my Xbox on my MacBook display instead of on the terrible standard definition 13" TV I have at school. Would it be possible to find a component to mini-display adapter? Would this even work? Any help is appreciated.

    No there isnt but and i think you would mean A/V to mini-display. Plus i dont think it works that way.

    The minidisplay port (and every other VGA/DVI/DisplayPort) on laptops is video out, not in. They can only transmit video.

    To do this you would need a usb device such as the elgato eyetv.

    Does the fact that the new iMac 27" models also support input from external DisplayPort sources change matters?

    As far as I know, to play Wii on a iMac you need to you EYE TV.

    I was wondering if that is not the case any more.

    Here is solution for you

    First you need component to dvi adapter which can be found anywhere for around $10.
    And then you need DVI to Mini DisplayPort converter which you can buy
