I'm going to buying a new mac soon. I'm currently using a 2008 mac pro with a 21" cinema display. And, a 2012 macbook pro with a 27" cinema display. I'm going to be replacing the mac pro. I'd like to gain some desk space and utilize just the single LED display. I've gone back and forth on what to get. I think I've settled on another macbook pro. Has anyone used 2 macbook pros with a single display? I believe it can be done through a Kanex SnapX switch. I'm not sure how external drives will pan out. I'm assuming you can't use the connections in the back of the display? When you switch from one to the other it will disconnect any drives? So, drives would need to be plugged in directly to each macbook. Is this correct? I also thought about getting an iMac and using it as the second display. But, I'm not sure that works all that great. I'm a little confused on how you use the iMac when not using the macbook. I don't think it goes to sleep. And, you can't use the facetime camera on the iMac when using the macbook. Anyways, if anyone has done this before with the two MacBooks, i'd be curious to hear how well it works or doesn't. Or, if anyone has better ideas, pass those along too. Ultimately, I'm trying to get down to one display and two systems.
