can i use iMac monitor as dual display for laptop
I am interested in adding an iMac 27" to my collection, however I need a dual monitor ability as well. Can I use the iMac monitor as a dual display for my mac book and my windows work computer as well. I currently have a VGA adaptor for my macbook to std monitor.
I perform many duties for work at home and need dual monitors.

Not directly, because the iMac has output capability to an external monitor but no input capability. I use a 17" MacBook pro with two external 24" Monitors and it's wonderful to have all of that screen space to make me more productive.
With a software app called Air Display from Avatron you can share your MacBook Pro or PC screen on the iMac.
