    hey guys,

    short and sweet, is there anyway to use a mac mini in target display mode?

    Also, if it is possible would i be able to use it as a a USB hub and have access to it's hard drive?

    Thanks

    target display mode? no...only iMacs are able to provide that
    However you can use Target disk mode and use the internal drive as an external drive.

    any drives connected to it may show up as well. but other ports are not used in TDM

    dam... i thought it might have been possible and then used it as somewhat of a thunderbolt dock.
