I want to hook up my mid 2010 imac 27 inch as a display to my mid 2011 Macbook Air to act as an external display. The iMac doesn't have a TB port but does have a mini display port, but the Macbook Air does have a TB port. What cable is needed, and how can I use the set up with the lid closed on the MBA?

Do I need to do anything special to use the wireless KB and Mouse for the iMac?

MacBook Air
