Is there anyway to use a new iMac's screen with a thunderbolt enabled Mac mini? Meaning I can use and switch between both systems on the iMac. TIA!

If your Mac's are networked then the built in Screen Sharing is free or you could use Apple Remote Desktop, this used to be pretty cheap when the App Store launch but its pretty expensive now.

Other options would be something like TeamViewer or LogmeIn but as they are your Macs and on your network I'd go with Screen Sharing first.

I believe you can use target display mode on the iMac with a Thunderbolt cable, using command F2 to switch between displays, but I'm not 100% sure. You may want to check with a genius at an Apple store for a definite answer.
