    Hi.

    I was just wondering if the iMac G5's (the late 2005 models, last ones without isight i think) can support using a VGA/DVI monitor as a proper spanned second display with something like screen spanning doctor that works on the old iBooks, rather than just mirroring whatever is on the iMac display.

    Works like a champ. In fact, it's the same patch as the old iBooks - Screen Spanning Doctor, FTW.

    I used this on my Rev a G5 iMac. Works so well that you have to wonder why Apple didnt do it themselves.. Actually, I could answer that, but I cant be bothered.

    Anyone have a bad experience doing this on an iMac G5 (the ones before the iSight)? I'd been told it could hurt the mother board - which is an issue because I've already had one go bad. But, I'd really like a second monitor to use both with my iMac and my macBook, I do a lot of photo retouching.
