    You will be able to add one additional external display to your iMac.

    You can add nearly any type of screen. Your iMac has one mini-DisplayPort out port. You can use a HDMI, DisplayPort, mini-DisplayPort, DVI, Dual-Link DVI, or VGA display with it, pending that you use the correct adapter.

    I'm not sure what screen you're referring it. In the image in the first post, the screen on the right is an HP. I do not know the maker of the screen on the left.

    That display will work. I recommend using a mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable to connect the two.

    When using the DisplayPort, you will be able to use the external Dell screen at its full Resolution.

    Hello again!

    Can you tell me about resolution? Looks good 24" display next to iMac 27" or I need 27" display?
