ScreenRecyler – Make use of your other computers Screen

Published Friday, January 8, 2010 1:37 PM

One of the downsides to having an iMac or laptop is that you can't use it as a second monitor. You can hookup a second monitor to it but you can't use the computer as another monitor. So for example if you have an iMac and a Macbook you can't connect them and use the Macbooks screen as a second screen for your iMac, that is until ScreenRecyler came along.

ScreenRecyler allows you to use an old PC or mac computer as a second monitor for your primary computer. It uses a VNC connection to send the video to the other computer so a fast network connection via ethernet cable is best.

This is great if you have an older Mac or PC that you don't do a whole lot with anymore. I know I have a couple computers that I could use this application with. If you get a laptop stand like a griffin Curve the laptop can even be at the same height as your iMac.

The application is ideal if you don't want to spend the money on a second monitor. So give it a try for free the full application cost $30 if you are pleased with the performance.
