    Hey, I know the iPad just got an App where it allows you to use it as a wireless secondary monitor.

    So I'm wondering, such technology should be available for the macbook too right?

    I know it's a bit sluggish, but here at work I only have 1 monitor and I do a lot of coding/multitasking work and if I could use my laptop as a secondary monitor (wirelessly/wired), that would be great.

    My work PC has Windows on it though, so that's something to note.

    No, neither the MB nor the MBP will do that, but the 27" iMac will.

    Yeah I know that about the iMac, but I just found some software that may do exactly what I want, however, I'd just have to run this under bootcamp as it's windows software only.

    I've seen a few youtube videos of it working as well.
