✅Quick answer: Yes, you can use an iMac 27" 5K as an additional monitor for a MacBook Air.

A Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable (3.3 ft) or a Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter may bring you the best results. Besides, if you're looking for the highest possible resolution and sharpest image quality, the iMac's 27-Inch 5K Retina display is a good choice.

👉🏻Follow the steps:

  1. Step 1. Connect the MacBook Air with the adapter using an HDMI cable. Then, connect the male end of the adapter to your iMac. Turn on your iMac and MacBook Air.
  2. Step 2. Press the Cmd + F2 or Cmd + Fn + F2 on the iMac keyboard to trigger Target Display Mode.
  3. Step 3. Wait for a few seconds, and then you will see the PC screen mirrored on the iMac screen.
  4. Step 4. You may also need to adjust the screen resolution for your iMac if it's relatively old. Try the 2560 x 1440 resolution on your MacBook Air.
