    I was wondering if it possible to hook up another mac or maybe even a pc to my 24inch iMac and use it as a monitor.



    Thanks,

    The iMac does not have video in so no. There is some software you can use across a network, but the name of it escapes me.

    You can use an Elgato thingy, they can function as a video in.

    They work for TV. Not sure they do one that will accept a computer signal.
