I have a noob question.. does the new input/output crap on the new powerbook allow you to plug a computer into it and run it on the pb lcd?

No. It doesn't. In order to do this, you would need to have a video capture device and connect the other computer to it. The quality would be very bad though.

Timbuktu, Apple Remote Desktop, and Microsoft Remote Viewer are basicly KVMs over IP and allow you to control systems remotely. They are awesome, infact my company uses them exclusively.
