How do you connect another external HDMI monitor to your iMac
Lets say you want to connect another external LCD monitor to your iMac or your Mac because you are a stock trader or a video editor how do you do that? You need a Mini Displayport to HDMI adaptor. I went to the Apple store to do some research.
If you need to connect a 2nd monitor to your imac or another mac device that doesn’t have an HDMI port what is the solution? I took a picture of our iMac, which didn’t have any more hdmi ports, but it has a mini display adaptor port. If you require a 4K adaptor then you can purchase the one from the apple store, which supports 4k for about $30-40, but its cheaper if you purchase it from Amazon.
What if I don’t have a 4K computer or a 4k monitor
Good news you can save even more as the apple store doesn’t sell an HD version. if you check your Mac’s display and the resolution is under 3840 * 2160 then your computer doesn’t support 4k and can purchase the HD one.
Or if your external LCD monitor doesn’t support 4K either then you don’t need a 4K adaptor.
You can purchase the HD version from Amazon for $5-9 depending on whether you are from Canada or the USA.
