    Hi, I work on my macbook pro and iMac at the same at my office.

    Multiple screen would help a lot, if I can do the way it shows on demo.


    Can someone tell me, how to try it ?
    is there any youtube video or something yet ?

    Are you wanting to use either the iMac or the Macbook Pro as an external display or do you have an additional display for your two macs? At any rate, using multiple displays is fairly easy in 10.9. There are, as you may have noticed from some of the comments here, a few little inconsistencies, but nothing major and nothing that Apple doesn't already know about.

    I will keep both iMac and Macbook Pro switched on.

    But I need the Macbook Pro screen to be seen on iMac too, so I can work on Macbook Pro, but on two screens.

    Possible ?

    And how do they get connected ?

    I dont see any way to connect in Settings even in DISPLAYS menu.

    Looks like, it needs a cord too.
    Can someone send me the link to buy that connection cord between the macs ?

    I was hoping for a wireless connection.

    There's no way I can think of to do a direct wireless display connection between the two. You would be able to use screen sharing, maybe, but that's slow and not really what you're looking for.

    This is the cable you'd need, you can find it cheaper from places other than Apple, just be careful of the quality.
