    What cable do I use to connect my mbp to my imac if I want to use the mbp as a secondary screen?

    Also, how to I select which computer is in use at the time?

    They are both 2010 model.

    thanks

    This?

    I don't know if you can do it the other way around.

    damm my imac is more powerful than my mbp. I was wishing it would work the other way around.

    It doesn't. The port on your MBP is output only.
