Yes you can, if you PB and iBook support video out (and it should). Go to the Apple Store (http://store.apple.com), look on the for Mac Accessories and then click on Displays. Scroll to the bottem. You will likely need a mini-VGA converter. Or go to CompUSA (compusa.com). They have them on the shelves. You can ask their employees questions.

Funny, my PowerBook came with a mini-to-DVI and mini-to-VGA adaptors.

If you buying a new PB or iBook, check the specs. or call apple (1-800-my-apple). There sales people also answer simple questions about current products 24/7.

My PowerBook came with a standard VGA to DVI adaptor, plugs right in.

The iBooks and the 12" PB need the mini-dv to VGA Eniregnat was talking about.

So it depends on the machine you have, but the answer is definitely.
