So i have an 2011 27" iMac i7, 16gb of ram, SSD+1TB HD. Which i use for gaming and internet browsing. Also i have a MBA 13' which i use for school... I been using my MBA for my electronics lab (basically programming micro-controllers, and alotttttt of programming) but it is getting old, since its kinda small screen and blah blah. I need to use Linux for all my programming needs, and been using Parallels with a ubuntu install to do this. Now my question. So im thinking about getting a monitor to put it on my desk and attached it to my iMac. If i do this, can i attach another wireless mouse/keyboard to it, and run both machines at the same time? like on one screen Ubuntu and on the other OSX? and assign the mouse and keyboard to that specific OS?? Or im better off getting a cheap computer (Running linux+programming can do on a 486) and attach a monitor to it?? Or even? do they sell docking stations for MBA??? i can prob connect an external monitor to it, and do just that?
