    In our home, we currently have a G4 Tower Dual 1 Ghz hooked up to the Apple 22 inch Cinema display. I'm thinking about buying a PowerBook soon, but is there a way to share the Cinema display between the G4 Tower and the PowerBook without having to unplug it from the G4 Tower every time? (like a switch box?)

    It's better to just unplug it and switch, reason being there's no KVM switch w/ ADC or DVI connector. And if you have to resort to using ADC to DVI to VGA adaptor, then you might as well stay w/ the PowerBook's screen for better picture quality.

    Just get a 17" Alu PB.

    Well, I'll be damn. I stand corrected. But too bad it'll cost you a limb to get that KVM. $449 for a KVM? Are you @#$%ing kidding me? No wonder people stay away Macs.
