    I'm a Mac. My wife is a PC...

    We are setting up a home office and we need to have the ability to run both OS X and Windows on my iMac. That's easy. The question I have is: can I link my iMac with my old iMac for multiscreen functionality, AND run Windows (through Parallels or similar) so that Windows also can be spread across both screens.

    I'm assuming the answer is yes, but would appreciate some recommendations as to the best method / software to get this done.

    TIA.

    If the old Mac is in the list on this page, then look through it for instructions on how to do it. If not, you'll need a software solution.

    if you're able to use the old iMac as a second monitor than yes, Parallels will allow you to use both of them with Windows
