    What is the largest size LCD TV I can connect to the iMac and what is required to do so?

    I want to run it in a separate "space" with various graphs and tools that we have running.

    You can run any size HDTV that you want.

    If you the maximum resolution a HDTV will put out is 1920 x 1080 (1080p) which is easily driven by a iMac.

    you can use one of these with a HDMI cable.

    or you can use the normal Mini-DVI to DVI adapter to a DVI - HDMI cable.

    Yup. I run my iMac with a 1080p 47" LCD TV connected as extended desktop all the time. Works great.

    Does that mean you could put a DVD in the iMac and watch it on your LCD TV?

    Yup - we do it all the time too. I don't even own a DVD player anymore. Just put it in the iMac and play it out to the LCD TV. Looks great too - I'm assuming that the iMac does a nice 1080p up-convert, because DVDs look pretty good.
