Nice how-to on Lifehakcer using open source app synergy for multi-montoring. There’s one mouse pointer and I can move it back and forth across the monitors just like I was on a single system. While I can’t drag windows from one monitor to the other, I can copy and paste text across and move files easily with mapped desktop drives on both ends. Link.

I’ve been doing something similar for 4 or 5 years using:
I’ve been using this exact setup for months between my Windows desktop and my Powerbook hooked up to my secondary 17″ LCD. I’ve also posted a couple blog posts about it, so I guess if I actually got traffic, this would be old news eh? :-)
Synergy is an awesome tool that anyone who has multiple machines of any platform should be using!
This is a good tip, but not great. There’s a slightly better solution – I have a triple display system plus laptop with the laptop on an articulatin tray so I can position it to align perfectly with my multi-screen display. CineMassive Displays set me up with this. you should check it out. Everything just fits together perfectly. Looks very professional.
