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.
You might have seen this..G4 Quicksilver capability
Quicksilver 2002 has dual 1.0Ghz cpus, 1GB RAM, ATI 7500 32MB video card, 160GB hard drive, DVD-RW.
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.
prolly be easier to buy a cheap lcd display, i just got a 24" Samsung for $210 so im sure a 15-19" would be dirt cheap
Only the 27" iMacs can be used as external displays via a video interface, but it is limited to MDP and Thunderbolt, thus your link does not apply, as the MBP does not allow video-in.
