So I have two older MacBook Pros:
- One is a 17", Unibody, Core 2 Duo, 2.8 Ghz, A1297 from 2009.
- The other is a 15", Unibody, Core i7, 2.0Ghz, A1286 from 2011.
- Both are running OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.
- The 17" has a Mini DisplayPort, and the 15" has a Thunderbolt port.
I would like to physically connect the two computers, and screen-share from the more powerful 15" (Core i7), to the older 17". Basically I want to be able to use the 15" laptop but with the larger screen of the 17".
Is there any way I can achieve what I would like to here?
I am aware that I can share screens via System Preferences over a local network, or Bluetooth or something. -But the picture quality is too degraded, and the frame-rate too slow for what I require.
Also, I do not have a male-to-male Mini DisplayPort cable yet, and I don't want to buy one until I can confirm that a connection like this can be successfully made between the two laptops.
