    I'm going away this weekend to my grans house, she only has a laptop there, is there anyway I can hook my Mini up to her laptop to use as a monitor?

    Thanks.

    Nope, but you could use something like VNC to access it over the network if you can get them on the same network.

    This question has been asked many times on these forums, and unfortunately the answer is no. As mentioned, your only option is to use a VNC server but it would be very slow and mostly unusable. Laptops and all-in-ones like iMacs are not designed to have a video input to be used as an external monitor.
