    ok so i have access to a heap of mac parts at work, and i wanna 'build' a 2nd monitor on the cheap. in this case just by taking a screen from a dead imac and plugging it into mine at home.

    i had a quick google but couldnt find anything. is anyone familar with a adapter that will convert a dvi or vga signal to LVDS (the internal cable of apple displays). might also need a solution for powering the thing.

    shiny, thats exactly what im looking for. thanks!

    now to find it for sale someplace

    [edit] lot of googling later. still no sales. i do hear a lot how it should be easy and cheap to get. but have yet to find someplace that sells the adapter of sorts. argh, it would be really cool to get a 2nd display without spending much money
