iMac G4 as Mac Mini Display??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if I could use the new mac mini to power my iMac G4 display? Just is a really nice machine and it would be a shame to get rid of it.

 

Any advice/theories or feedback are welcome

There is... sorta. There was a program I recently saw that let a Mac use another Mac (or PC) as a second monitor as long as you had a VNC server running on it. I've used VNC before, it's okay for remotely operating a computer, but it's definately much slower than a monitor attached directly to your mini. Also, things like video playback aren't going to work.
