    Hi,

    I am new to all this stuff so bare with me,

    I am wondering whether i can like my iMac 21.5" and my tv (it has a 'PC' channel on it) and i was wondering if i could use them as 'dual monitors' i think it's called? so i use the TV and the iMac monitor for my iMac?

    I dont know if this makes sense but if anyone could tell me if this is possible i would be very grateful, thanks.

    Yes, you can do that. What inputs does your TV have? PC input usually refers to VGA but that is worse than DVI or HDMI so if you have a free HDMI port, I would get Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. In fact, I have a similar setup, 24" iMac + 32" Sony HDTV connected via HDMI.
