Mobile Tip: Turn Old Laptops Into Remote Terminals

One of the problems I have is after I upgrade, what do I do with old laptops.  Right now, my Powerbook is running just fine but the screen just is not as bright as it once was.  I can't tell if I compare it to the new Macbook LCD.  I'm sure there are some degradation though.

So, what do I do with it?  Well, it still has a DVI adapter so I think I should be fine.  But some laptops don't.  What should you do then?

Gearhack decides to turn an old Sony Viao into a remote terminal.  I think it's a great idea in this instance and really gives milage for laptops that still have a lot of life left.

Check out Gearhack .  If you have questions, I'm sure GH will be happy to help out.
