Can I use my laptop as a second monitor for my desk computer?
I bought a Netbook, and so far I love it. However, I'd like to get a bit more utility out of it. When I'm at home it just sits on my dresser, not being productive at all. I was thinking that I could use it as a secondary monitor for my main laptop. What software and hardware would be necessary for a setup such as this? Even though the screen is small I figure I could use it to augment various tasks. I figure it'd be neat to have two webpages open simultaneously.
It's an Asus Eee running Windows 7 stater, while my main laptop is a Sony Vaio running Windows 7 Home Premium. Both have Ubuntu 10.04 installed, however I'd like to stay on the Windows side for this.
I did a little more research and it looks like I may be able to do it with simply a VGA cable. Before I run out and buy one, I'd like to make sure I'm interpreting this right.
