As I have been using MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac Air (Mid 2011) for business purpose, I wanna use them working at home.


I really expected that there was new cinema display with Retina display, but there wasn't. However, New iMac looks really nice & I would love to buy it.


But Using a 27-inch iMac(Mid 2012) as an external display is one of my important required function to buy it.

What do you think? is a 27-inch iMac (Mid 2012) able to use target display mode?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
