    Hi,

    I tried finding the answer to this online but I can't seem to find it for iMac, all the questions seem to be towards MacBooks.

    I currently I have a few dead pixels on my iMac so I'm looking to purchase a new screen for it. Is it possible to purchase a retina screen and stick that in? I have experience in taking the iMac apart previously although I've never taken a retina one apart.

    No I'm afraid not, there is a special connector that allows the computer to run a 5K screen it is only in the retina iMac and is a solution apple came up with to use a 5K screen before they were supported by mainstream tech, it's just not possible.

    Hi Samuelsan2001, thanks for the reply, it's a shame I was looking forward to potentially doing that. Thanks again for the quick reply.
