    Im new on here so hello.

    I have a fairly new 27'' iMac and a fairly new macbook. I want to use the macbook as an additional to the Imac for when im woring at my desk.

    Ive got hold of a mini display cable which plugs into both and have managed to set it up so the Imac is used as the external monitor running off the macbook but i wanted it to be the other way round.

    Is this possible??

    thanks in advance.

    Only the 27" iMac can be used as an external display via Mini DisplayPort.
    Maybe have a look at ScreenRecycler.
