    I have the non refreshed second generation Macbook airs ( non i5 and i7) and am about to buy the 27" iMac. I was wondering if I could connect my macbook air to the mac even though the Air has no thunderbolt port but still has a mini-DVI or something like that?

    Try ScreenRecycler. Slower than a real monitor, but fine for more static windows.
