    Odd setup, but I have 2 iMac's (2010 27") and I'd temporarily like to use the second machine as an additional display to the first.

    I already had a mini display port -> mini display port cable, connected both up and neither see the other...

    Any ideas/pointers on how to achieve this setup?

    Thanks

    So you got your help from the previous post reply but I have a question.

    If you want to use the 2nd monitor as a extension to the first why don't it be a cinema display rather than buying two of the same computer?

    One would be the iMac 27" and the other a Cinema Display.

    See the word "temporarily" in his post. That should answer your question.

    Yes this very much does. I missed that word.
