    That's video out, not video in.

    Yes, that's the purpose of the video out, I run my 20" iMac with an external 20" monitor by the side, giving me twice the real-estate

    according to the tech specs I've looked at. The graphics card supports: Mini-DVI output port with support for DVI, VGA, S-video, and composite video connections.
