I have an iMac 21.5" and a MacBook pro. How can I connect the macbook pro to use the iMac's screen?

Which models, when were they purchased? As far as I know only the 27" can handle it, but if you can specify which one it might make it easier to work out. –  Nicholas Smith Sep 24 '11 at 20:15

All you need is a mini display to mini display chord; one end goes in your iMac & the other end goes into your MacBpook Pro

Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone. Please take a look at the FAQs for more info. Thanks. –  Nathan Greenstein Sep 24 '11 at 22:32

You can simply use the screen sharing feature in OS X - it's really easy to use. I've written an easy to follow tutorial about how to use it:
