    The only option for that right now is the Kanex XD, which does retail for 150 dollars. Any other adapter is for connecting a Mini DisplayPort OUTPUT to a display.

  • No... Unless you have Apple Technician tools and knowledge, there is no way to convert your Macintosh screen into a monitor for input that I know of. Perhaps there are devices that allow you to do that but this is not one of them.This converter takes the signal your Mac creates and pushes it to another display such as another monitor or a projector through the MiniDisplay Port.
