    I'm not sure which forum to put this under, but anyway.

    Is there an adaptor (official or third party) that connects the imac to another led screen. I would like to have double the screen real estate under windows (boot camp) and in osx.

    Any Mini DisplayPort to VGA/DVI/HDMI adapter will work. The best adapter for your needs depends on the monitor you have.

    This is false. It would be true for the VGA and DVI converters, but my HDMI adapter from Monoprice outputs audio just swell.

    Thanks, I guess they changed that adapter since I made that guide. That's where I copied that NOTE from anyway.
    Btw, Macs using MDP and being released before 2009/2010 can't transfer audio via the MDP interface, that is where the adapter comes from, but I guess Monoprice updated that adapter.

    Thanks! I forgot about the mini display ports. (still a mac noob). I asked a store if it was possible to do this, the guy said no. To his credit he's knowledgable about pc stuff.

    Off to the mac store I go.
