    Spanning Monitors In The Apple Store
    I was wondering, is there another way of spanning monitors instead of using a hack? I saw a PowerBook in an Apple Store which was connected to an Apple Cinema Display and it was spanning its monitors. Can you span monitors in Tiger, in a PowerBook, in an Apple Cinema Display? Are there new features? Can I span a monitor on my iMac without using a hack?

    PowerBooks have spanning built in and don't need a hack

    Only iBooks, emacs and iMacs (I think) have screen spanning crippled...
    On all models it can be circumvented though.

    Spanning is using a second display to "extend" your desktop space. It can be set so the mouse moves seamlessly between them. This option is native with the Powermacs and the Powerbooks. All other models need a hack.

    Its worth noting, that SPANNING ROCKS! Nothing beats my 12"PB, and 2005FPW 20" widescreen display, spanned together next to my recliner. Add those with my Apple BT wireless keyboard and mouse, and I have a world of computing right in my easychair!
