    MacBook
    This is just not possible.
    You would be better off parting out the machine or trying to get as much as you can for it as it is.

    You can only ouput the display of the laptop. Moreover, it wouldn't make much sense to use a laptop as a monitor. IMHO, you would be better off selling your iBook and maybe putting that money to a macbook, g4 powerbook, or a g4 ibook. Or maybe even buying a LCD monitor???
