    After a botched repairjob, I have a spare Macbook screen with scratches in it. It works fine, but it's not worth anything, so I thought I might have some fun with it.
    Is there any way I can connect it to a normal DVI or VGA port on my server? That way I could tape it to the side of the case and not have to drag my normal screen into the wardrobe every time I have a problem with it.

    Haha...that it so ghetto. But it looks like it worked!

    OP I like your idea but I wouldn't know how to make the connections. It has to be possible.

    We have a few of those old 15" LCD monitors floating around work...horrible horrible screens in terms of contrast/color/brightness...
