How to turn your dual-monitor PC into a dual mac-PC system

Mac-Pc 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 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.
