my wife has an emac 1.25 ghz. she would like to disconnect its internal display all together and keep the emac under her desk with the screen pointed at the wall. she thinks its ugly but bought it because its cheap. its a fast enough system but has a crappy shadow mask screen thats only 17" and she has a nice sony 21" trinitron for cad work. I know some of you will think she should use the dual hack but she wants all the vram on the 21" and doesn't even want to see the 17" at all. she has an external dvd-r so she won't need to get at its optical drive the back of the emac looks cooler than the front. would the mirroring port then work as a normal monitor connector? I would assume that since the internal would not even be on that the external screen would not be limited to 1280x960 as with normal mirroring. I think she has a great idea here and I hope it can be done.
