I purchased a Seagate 2TB USB 3.0 External HDD for .99 on Nov. 7th at Target. For anyone wanting to buy these you may want to go there.

I didn’t really want an External drive, but this was a good deal.

    Might this work without the target mac's disk being mounted?

    Thanks for such a good reassuring support article. I only needed to watch the first section to solve my issue, and now have a fully functioning mac again. 🙂

    Please help me with this: Is it possible to switch between hosts in target display mode? I mean, to use the Mac Book Pro display as an extension for the Imac.

    When the iMac in Target Display Mode is acting as host to the MacBook Pro, can you resize the MBP's windows to use the full extent of the iMac's larger screen? Do resolutions on both machines have to match?
