I got the go ahead at work to start using my ibook. The IT guy said i'd be better off working in terminal for our DB than in the QAD program they run on the windows machines. I will have to keep the windows machine around because there is an .exe that i have to run on it. I would really like to use the monitor for my ibook as well as the pc... i'm wondering if i there is some type of switch so that a monitor could be plugged into both my pc and ibook at the same time. I only need to see the pc interface a couple of times a day. Thanks again, if anyone can help me with a solution its you all!
