    Hi! I'm finally getting an iMac at work and getting rid of the old Dell they had me on. However, I would like to keep my old pc monitor and use it with my new iMac as a dual screen so I can have an extended desktop. Is there anything I need to know about doing this as far as special cables etc.? Thanks!

    You need an appropriate adapter for the Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort interface to whatever interface your display has (DVI, VGA, HDMI).
