I have a PC laptop with an HDMI output, but not a mini displayport.  I have a 27" iMac with a mini displayport jack.  If I want to use the iMac as an external monitor for the PC laptop, can I use a mini displayport to HDMI cable?  Or does my laptop need to have a mini displayport jack as well?



iMac (27-inch Mid 2010)
