    Go to version tracker and download teleport which allows you to use the mba's trackpad to go into your mac pro and control the mouse on you mac pro and use your mba on your lap to control both your mba and mac pro!!

    This is bad ass.

    instead of using your keyboard for your mac pro you can just use the mba on your lap as the wireless keyboard and trackpad to control both your mac pro and your mba.

    so its basically like a bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Makes sense on a 52 inch screen rthat he has but seems like a waste of electricity...

    Nope teleport allows me to move my mouse to the far right or left (wherever I choose for my mouse to teleport over to the mac pro and vice versa having total control with same short cut keys and allowing me to move small files back and forth as well).

    I dont connect my mac pro to the sony bravia, lol. I use an apple cinema display 23" on my mac pro that I use the mba's trackpad/keyboard to use wirelessly laying back on my chair to use both =D

    I had a use for a program like this once. When I had a Mac and a PC set up side by side, but only wanted to use one keyboard and mouse. I had it set up so that when I moved the mouse off the right side of my Mac, it came on the left side of the PC. It worked great, but I was using OSX2X or something like, and I had to be running VNC for it to work properly.

    That's exactly what I was thinking it sounded like. I use synergy when I bring my work laptop home with me. It's nice to never have to touch the thing :D

    Thanks for posting this! I used Synergy (SynergyKM) previously and have never been able to get it working since upgrading to Leopard. It's really convenient to be able to hop onto my Mini's when working on the Air. :D

    Cheers,

    Tom
