    Lightbulb G4 and MacBook pro connection? screen only?
    hi guys

    im just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible for me to hook up my old G4 powerbook (OSX 10.3.9) up to my Macbook Pro (10.5.7) but just as another monitor/ display?

    it would make things a lot easyer for me when im running a few differant applications but im not sure if it can be done at all with laptops? or what cables are needed?

    any ideas anyone? thanks

    No, it's not possible.

    If you want/need a second display then you will have to use an actual monitor (not a notebook computer or all-in-one computer)

    Thanks for that link! I didn't know there was a program available like that. Pretty cool if you have two iMac's, or two laptops, or one of each.
