    hi! My iMac 27" late 09 has crashed, diagnosed with crashed graphics card (yellow vertical lines, can only start in safe mode). Will buy a Macbook pro 13" retina. My question is - can I use my old iMac as display? Or does the IMac graphic card have to be working?

    You need the iMac's graphics card to be working.
