    Is this possible and has anyone here done this before, and does it work well?

    you must have one of the macs in the article that GGJstudios linked to. basically within about 2 years old.

    If you are planning on watching video using this, the quality will be lower and the video will probably stutter a bit.
    Wired ethernet or fast wi-fi (802.11n 5GHz) will eliminate some but not all of this.

    when it comes out in a few months OS X Mavericks will include the option to use airplay as a second display instead of just showing the same image as on the main display. It will probably have the same quality issues.
