I am currently thinking about getting a second display for my iMac.
Because my iMac is only 17" i need a bigger screen.
I have 3 questions-
1. Can i use my imac as the second display and have my new display as the main screen displaying the menubar and dock?
2. Are there any monitors other than the apple displays that look really good with the imacs?
3. With an intel graphics card is there a maximum screen size it can cope with?
Cheers
