    Can I hook two monitors up to a iMac 5k? I already have the monitors. They're both Samsung TV / Monitor combos and have a selection of ports like HDMI, DVI, VGA. They don't have DisplayPort ports. I know I could hook one up. Is there a way to connect both?

    Yes, you can connect both of them. Just get two Mini DisplayPort to HDMI or Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters and plug them into the two ports on the back of your iMac.

    Oh, thanks. Didn't realize it had two ports, was thinking only one like my current iMac.

    If I wanted to use one of the ports for a hard drive I suppose I'd need one of those Thunderbolt docks with all the ports.
