    Hello. I have an iMac 27 and when I purchased it I knew it would support video in. Well right now. I have an old notebook with VGA out is there any cheap way to connect it to the iMac? By cheap way I mean using only cables. I'm afraid that a converter may be needed and that's expensive right? Thank you in advance for your help

    You will need a converter. Multiple threads about this in the forum. VGA is analog and the port on the iMac is digital.
