    Don't think it is possible. There aren't any video inputs on the iBook.

    Let's say it simple: NO!

    It is a laptop, an entire computer, doesn't have a VGA or DVI input (as no laptop or other all-in-one computer has). It is not meant to be used as a separate display.

    It's been at least 2 weeks that I haven't seen that question... :cool:
    It has been asked a million times already...maybe computer manufacturer should put that in their manuals for laptops and all-in-one's...

    But then...who reads manuals nowadays?!? :bone:
