Hello All,

I have two MacBook computers, and was wondering if it is possible to link the two computers in such a way that they will function almost like a dual monitor. As in, I can move the mouse from one screen directly into the other, drag windows from one computer to the other, and so on. If anyone has any ideas or solutions, let me know. Ideally, I would like a way to do this via Bluetooth, but anything that works would be great!

Worth every penny. DVI in as well as VGA. Check out the reviews as well.

Closest thing to that would have a virtual machine set in one display and then you can move the mouse in and out of windows/whatever the virtual machine is.

the mac comes with RealVNC, a screen sharing app
system preferences->sharing->screen sharing

RealVnc uses bandwidth so bluetooth may not work? ment to be used over a network.

wait... you want to computers... to essentially run as one computer?
this is possible, but i don't think you can have both screens. and it's very technical.
