    I have to make a keynote presentation, but I can not use a big screen, so I decided to use two macbooks.
    One will be a white macbook, and another a unibody macbook'15.
    How can I connect the two ?
    If it's not posbile I have also the posibility of using two unybody macbook (on 13 and one 15).
    Any suggestions.
    thank you very much

    Screen document sharing via ichat should do it.

    You might need to set the presentation to the display pixel size of the viewing machine.

    I hope you're not thinking of having one side of the presentation on one computer and the other side on the other so as to have the two screens function as one big display. I don't think that will work.

    no no

    No, I was just thinking to have the two displays showing the same thing.
    Having one with the keynote presentation running and the other screen (macbook) just showing the same thing.

    I will try the ichat settings ...

    Screen Recycler may also work for you. You can connect the two computers with an ethernet cable to establish a network between the two machines (create a separate Location for them, or make sure you save the current internet setup somewhere so you can revert back).
