Would it be possible to customize a macbook so that it has 2 screens instead of 1?

what i mean is, could i hook up the lcd from another macbook and connect so that it has 2 screens..

if it could work, would i have to connect it via minidisplayport or is there a way to connect it to the video board..

essentially something like this..

    how is screenrecycler different from synergy-foss.org ? – Cosu Jun 6 '11 at 13:26
  • Yeah but it's not the same is it? Synergy is pretty much an automatic keyboard-mouse switch whereas ScreenRecycler is using the second computer's display as a display for your first computer. – XQYZ Jun 6 '11 at 13:38
  • @XQYZ - youre right. The synergy is only a sort of kvm. So, you can share your mouse and keyboard between more systems, but does not externd the current system with a second display. – jm666 Jun 6 '11 at 13:38
  • @XQYZ you are right. Guess I was a bit too jumpy – Cosu Jun 6 '11 at 13:41
