    In your head.
    Yes you can, if you PB and iBook support video out (and it should). Go to the Apple Store, look on the for Mac Accessories and then click on Displays. Scroll to the bottem. You will likely need a mini-VGA converter. Or go to CompUSA. They have them on the shelves. You can ask their employees questions.

    Funny, my PowerBook came with a mini-to-DVI and mini-to-VGA adaptors.

    If you buying a new PB or iBook, check the specs. or call apple (1-800-my-apple). There sales people also answer simple questions about current products 24/7.

    My PowerBook came with a standard VGA to DVI adaptor, plugs right in.

    The iBooks and the 12" PB need the mini-dv to VGA Eniregnat was talking about.

    So it depends on the machine you have, but the answer is definitely.
