Hey, I want to hook up 1 or more iPads to my computer and use them as external monitors.
Wireless can be unreliable and slow, so I was wondering if there's a way to do this using cables. Because that would be rad. As.

At this point, even when jailbroken, I do not think this is possible. I know it is not possible with the non-jailbroken machines.
I use Air Display with no issues. I wont be gaming with the iPad as the screen, but for a screen to hold some extra stuff while I am working in other apps it is great.MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1GB RAM

+1 on AirDisplay. If you do go this route make sure to check compatibility before buying. With Lion there are some machines and video chipsets that don't work with AirDisplay. Hopefully there will be a fix, but until then check to be sure. Machines running Snow Leopard have no issues that I am aware of.13" rMBP 256gb | Mac Mini | 24" ACD | 128GB Verizon iPhone 7 Plus | 128GB iPad Pro LTE | 16GB iPad mini 2 | Gen 7 Nano | Gen 4 iPod Touch | TV1 | TV3 | TV4 | Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray
