    Has anyone tried connecting his or her Mac mini to a Toshiba laptop PC computer and use the laptop screen as a display? Is it possible? How do I do it?

    VNC will likely be your only option unless you have TV-out on the mac mini and tv-in on the laptop.

    I found something here. In the Toshiba PC laptop, there is a composite video and S-Video input available for display. I wonder if the Mac Mini has a video or S-Video output instead of the DVI-VGA output?

    Yes, using the Apple DVI to Video Adapter.

    Are you sure the connections on the Toshiba are inputs? I've never heard of a laptop that had display inputs, but hey, there's always a first.
