I have a new MacBook Pro and an almost dead Titanium PB G4 but the display works fine. Anyone know if it's possible to use the old laptop as a display only to do editing on. Don't want to buy a full display yet, especially if I have one here that I can use (and is portable)...

something like the eyetv hybrid has an input so you can play console games on the screen, I'm sure you can adapt something like that to connect it to your macbook pro.
