View Full Version : Using 2012 MBA as second monitor?

Apr 25, 2013, 01:03 PM
So i have a 2012 Macbook Air and want to somehow hook it up and use it as an extended monitor while at work. I work on a PC and was just wondering what i would need for it to work. my guess is getting a vga adapter for the MBA and just connecting it that way but im not sure if the MBA takes input or not

The Macbook Air cannot accept video input without a USB video capture device.

If you just want it for monitoring purposes, no heavy fast graphic etc, can always use a Remote Desktop app at both ends. I find VNC the easiest.

No extra hardware or expense.
