    I thinking of buying a Late 2012 Mac Mini which has 1 thunderbolt port and 1 hdmi port.

    I want to use my old iMac 2009 as an external monitor and use the thunderbolt port of the mac mini to conenct to my external thunderbolt storage.

    Is it possible to use the imac as an external monitor connecting the hdmi port of the mac mini to the display port of the iMac?

    Here is a Link to a thread where someone claims to have done something similar to what you want, read through it and you'll quickly see it's not a quick or easy fix.
