    Hi,

    Is it possible to use a fully working G3 iBook as the display for a Mac Mini?

    Thanks.

    Well, technically Target Disk Mode will mean you're running form the iBook, but you'll have the mini's hard disk mounted as a drive on the Desktop, giving you access to all its files. The computer doing all the work will still be the iBook though. :eek:

    Actually, further down in that linked thread I gave, they talk about using Apple Remote Desktop or VCN to use the iBook's screen as a display for another machine.

    True, but then you'll have your network speed as the bottleneck.
