    Alright, I have an old Macbook Pro that is unused, and I thought the other day it might be worth investigating using it as a second monitor, getting extra computing power, etc.

    So, is it possible to use a second macbook pro as a second display for my current macbook pro?

    Or, is there something else I could do with it that might make use of it asides from selling it? (It wouldn't fetch much)

    Synergy software would allow you to use the keyboard and mouse on one computer to control it and the extra macbook you have. They computer would still be separate, but you would benefit from more screen space.

    The program can be found at:
