    I have a macbook pro 15 inch with thunderbolt and osx lion
    and a imac 24 inch.

    Now i went to an apple store and ask them if i could connect my macbook to my imac, they said just 'no' and they gave me no other solution... nice service haha. What I want is that when i arrive home i just want to work on the big screen by simply connect the macbook to the imac.

    I'm considering to sell my imac and buy a 27 inch screen, but an apple screen costs 999 euro while i can get an HP 27 inch screen for just 340 euro.
    But my 2 questions are the next:

    can i connect the macbook to a different screen than an apple screen
    what would you do? :)

    No, but there are displays with Mini DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt is using the same form factor for its plugs and ports.

    To learn more about Thunderbolt (TB) and its compatibility with Mini DisplayPort (MDP):
