    So... I've been transferring data from my old iBook to my new MacBook Pro 17. I don't have a firewire cable to do it automatically. And I was copying my large notepad phonebook from the old iBook into the Macbook's Address Book application and sharing it via Plaxo. And...

    I found myself using both screens, back and forth. Just like on dual monitors on a desktop. Lookup an address on the web, and then type on the other console.

    I like. I am going to get a regular MacBook for this reason, when I am able. Then I'll tote the 13.3 inch MacBook around about town, and have this one for a desktop at home/office.

    I think this is funny, but it really is nice to have two notebooks in a recliner.

    Why not just keep the iBook for when you need two screens?

    Personally, I prefer two monitors on the same computer. Even though I have enough stuff interconnected that I can essentially do the same thing you did.
