The macbook has some video output listed at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2541
So that's a DVI output.
The imac 24 has these connections -> http://www.apple.com/imac/specs/
Still a DVI output. So there is no direct output to input. But this doesn't mean we can't network them and share either files or displays. Here's an example http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=4146248
Try a soft solution?
I am considering monitor options to use with my laptop (MacBook Pro).
I work as a print graphic designer and am partial to apple monitors.
I am thinking that spending for a 24" imac could be a good investment IF I could easily connect the laptop to that monitor.
Ideally I would like to work primarily on the laptop and use the imac mostly for backup, since that insures I have ALL needed files with me when I travel for work, and at the same time I wouldn't be SOLELY dependent on a single computer!
Any input on a which Imac would make most sense, or advice on this whole idea would be appreciated! THANKS- Jane
