I admit, I haven't looked anything up. I knew this new Imac did not have a dvd/cd drive anymore. Question is, is there a way to take a program from a disk and move it to a flash drive or sd card and running it rather than getting an external drive? Second question. I know this 27" screen is huge and I can open more than one window at a time, but I am a homeschooler and sometimes want to turn the screen around so my kids can see something. I would like to be able to connect an external monitor. Is there a firewire cable or something that can do that since the IMac doesn't have an HDMI port?
