    Unfortunately, only the 27" is able to be used as a monitor.

    Yes, only the 27" has a display input function.

    You can use your 21.5" or any other Mac as a TV, simply go to:

    http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmenu/products.en.html

    and you will find several products, just find one that fits your needs and off you go.
