    I just got an iMac running 10.6.1 And I still have a Mac Mini running 10.4.11, which allows me to access several apps running under Classic. I'd like to still access them on the glossy new monitor, with the wireless Magic Mouse. Since the iMac has no monitor input port, how do I hook up a KVM switch? Which brand do you recommend?

    Do you mean you just got a NEW iMac?
    The old iMacs can't do that.

    If not, you are going to need to purchase the NEW iMac.

    The old iMac would not work because it cannot accept other video input. I think only the new 27" can accept other video input.

    The KMV would not work with Magic Mouse because Magic Mouse use bluetooth, not USB. Well I think you can pair your Magic Mouse with two Mac machines but you cannot switch conveniently between machines.
