    I've tried to connect my macbook pro and my powerbook with a dvi cable, when I tried to detect display from my new macbook pro nothing happen, does anyone know how should I connect my powerbook as a second display for my macbook pro?

    Really appreciate if anyone can answer me! xx

    The only Mac with a video in port is the new 27" iMac via mini DisplayPort.

    You PowerBook and MackBook Pro are not able to have a video input via the DVI port.

    You can have a look at Screen Recycler, which extends your display via Ethernet.
