    Hi, I'm too cheap to buy a new monitor :) so my question is can I use my macbook as a monitor while having it still running on folding or handbrake or whatever.

    thanks for the input.

    I sadly dont think you can...

    I posed the very same question a few years back with my powerbook G4 so I could hook up my ps2.

    Sadly there was no solution and I was told that it wouldnt work...

    My threads are here and here
