    I would like to use my iMac as a screen for my MacAir. What are the best ways of achieving this?

    Also how does this affect use of the iMac

    Many thanks

    Your iMac's model and specs? The latest 5k retina one from 2014 does not support this feature.

    Very simple, please read Apple's advice letter on Target Display Mode. You can find it by clicking

    In that letter you will find which Macs are capable of TDM. If your machine is not on the list then there is no other viable method.
