I wasn't sure how to word this but here it goes.

I have a 27" iMac on my desk connected to a Gateway 15" (facing away from) on the corner of my desk.

I was wondering (without mirroring) is there a way a smaller window on my 27" iMac can be like my "preview" of what is showing on the 15" gateway.

I would Mirror it but my Screen Resolution on my 27" takes on the 15" resolution - very wierd and not cool.

If I use the side by side, it does what I want but because the smaller screen is facing away from me I can't tell if I am showing the correct information/image/spreadsheet

See my pic below.

Can this be done?


PS - hahaha I misspelled hybrid
