    Hi all,
    As I understand, it is not possible for VGA input for iMac 2011 (27").
    How about any remote display? VNC? Air Display? SplashtopRemote?
    Which one is the best for remote my windowXP notebook (1 year old) and smooth enough for daily business work e.g. using MS work/Excel...
    Also, which one can have the best resolution?

    Somewhere Back In The Long Ago
    The Only One Ive Tried

    Before I ditched my Toshiba Laptop in favour of an MBA was Splashtop...Believe me the quality was appalling and I only tried it once.

    Saying that, the app has updated umpteen times on my devices since then, so it may have improved.
