    Hi there,
    does anyone know if it is possible to use a Black Macbook as a keyboard/trackpad for an iMac? The idea would be to use the iMac as the computer and the macbook just as a keyboard/trackpad and if possible as secondary screen [maybe too much to ask for...:)]
    Thanks in advance!

    Depending on the iMac you could use the iMac as a second screen for the macbook.

    Screen sharing is a possibility but you would want to be on a wired connection.

    That doesn't solve the problem

    I want to do the same thing, use the Macbook's keyboard for the iMac. Those suggestions are about using the iMac as a display for the Macbook.
