    you need a dual video display card.. this will work nicely in your desktop.. as for your laptop,unless you have a docking station , this will not happen.

    Can you clarify.. "moving screens between these 2 computers"?

    Accepted Solution

    Ok.. clear as day...never seen a product like that, and after reviewing the will be an inexpensive solution to a traditional hardware solution

    Here are the system requirements:

    if your computers support that above, then your should be good to go.  The link you provided me has a 14 day trial / 50 executable trys / expires by June 06, which ever comes first.

    $20.36 for the software if you want to purchase it.

    There are limitations where you cannot use OPEN GL or Direct X hardware acceleration.  So if you are just a casual Microsoft Office Word / Excel user, this would be ideal.  If you are using Photoshop or significant graphics oriented programs, this may be cumbersome working on dual machines.

    it is suggested by the documentation that your Windows XP (or more powerful computer) be the main/hosting computer.

    Hope that helps you decide if this will work for you.

    The trial is FREE, nothing to lose if you check it out.
