Using Mac mini with iMac display

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Alec McKenzie, May 12, 2008.

  1. I have a 20" iMac, 2.1 GHz PowerPC G5, 1.5 GB RAM, Mac OS 10.4.11.

    For the first time I have a need to run a (standalone) Mac
    application that requires an Intel processor.

    I have spare keyboard and mouse available.

    If I were to obtain a Mac mini, is there a way I could set things up
    to run this application on it, using the iMac in some way as a
    display?

    the only way is to use screen sharing of some sort. i find that
    timbuktu has the fastest response (i can watch videos on a different
    mac using it) compared with vnc & apple remote desktop.
