Hey I have an old iMac G4 and I was wondering if I could just use the screen somehow since I don't need to use it as a computer? Could I use it like a TV to play xbox or something? thanks!

Unfortunately the older iMacs cannot be used by another device as a monitor.

This is probably about as close as you can get. http://www.screenrecycler.com/ScreenRecycler.html

I've got the same sort of question.
I have a MBP running Snow Leopard and a TiBook G4 running Tiger. I want to use the PB as a second display.
Would screen recycler even work?

Yep, it will lag a little but it would work.

Doesn't seem to matter anymore as my TiBook seems to have suddenly died on me :(

This looks like an interesting way to use 2 iMacs in harmony. Man, I love those displays. No G4 gets left behind. :p I may try it.
