    I think the 27 inch can be hooked up as TB display.

    Neither. Apple has a Remote Desktop app that I use to log in remotely to different desktops. No sound though.

    Thanks, do you not have some sort of lag?

    It depends on the connection I guess. I'm usually in there to run maintenance scripts for work so lag is a non-issue for me.
