Hey guys I'm wondering if it's possible to use a 2010 Macbook Pro as a display for a G4 Quicksilver.

Which model quicksilver? How much RAM? What purpose?

If you upgrade to 10.5 you could use its Screen sharing abilities. I control a couple of headless macs this way.

There is some lag from the wireless connection which in your case would be accentuated by the QS's laggy running of 10.5.

A 5 second forum search would've brought you your answer.

It's do-able, but it will suck immensely and be very laggy. I suggest you buy a cheap LCD display and save yourself the hassle.
