    Hello,

    I wonder if one could use the new Mac Mini plugged to
    an ibook G4 ??

    What I mean, is to be able to use the Mac Mini using
    the keyboard and display of the ibook G4. Is this
    anyhow possible ??

    Thank you very much, kind regards,

    igmolinav.

    No, unfortunately it is not possible to do that. There is not an input for the iBook's display, only an output. And there is noway to access the keyboard for use with another computer.

    You could remotely control the Mini from the iBook, but then you would be bottlenecked by the iBook's maximum performance.

    You can find an old TFT screen on ebay for nothing. And a keyboard + mouse = under $10.
