    i have a laptop XP, i was curious if it would be possible to boot the mac mini from a usb cable or something from the laptop, so i could still use my laptop and then just decide which one to boot, so basically i would just use the laptop as a screen, but is it possible to it?

    Edit:

    i found a good website and found a post where a guy tried but found something thats crutial for it to work... Technically you could do, but you would have to have a video-in port, whereas they all have video-out,but not sure that they even make a laptop with video-in, but if they do or you could mod it for it to, then yea i guess it would be possible.

    Whenever someone asks anything about the mac mini, you always redirect them to your post, but im pretty sure that there is nothing to do with his question in that post.

    anyways, thats a good question it would be pretty cool.
