Computer monitors

Postby dylanger » Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:11 am

I'm looking at buying two monitors and was going to set my imac on the floor and not use the display (crack in it). Anyone know if this is possible. I ask here because I recall Andrew using his Mac book pro like this for the Paul Grady session.

Yeah you just need an adapter for it. Depending on what generation your iMac is you'll need either a minidisplay port adapter or a mini VGA adapter. If you want to not use the iMac monitor at all I'd recommend getting a monitor with the exact same resolution as the iMac and mirroring the displays. If they aren't the same resolution it might do some weird scaling things to get things to work together.
