How to use hardware wisely? can I use a mini and iMac 2008 screen
too many apples! My iMac is nice to look at when it isn’t running… if I upgrade my mac mini could I connect them and use the iMac 2008 as a monitor?
Has anyone done this?
Also a different and mostly unrelated question:
regarding upgrading mac mini with dual storage could I use bootcamp on one drive and mac os on a new ssd? I stopped using my old laptop that I have bootcamp online because I didn’t want to go online with old programs that I can’t give up. In other words: to stay safe I have bootcamp with old excel etc on and never go online with it. whew
I have heard that having windows / bootcamp even if you aren’t using it, opens you up to viri!!! I haven’t been right since microsoft xl! miss it so!!
I go online on a mac running only mac os. (like I said… too many apples)
By “dual” I am wondering if that really means the systems are separate enough for different (ancient) operating system that would never be vulnerable or accessible to the outside world.
OK stop Laughing!!!
UPDATE RE: USING old iMac as a monitor: why didn’t I think of that…. looking on the apple website. Dan pointed me in the right direction and I found these specifics.
