Which cables do I need to hook up a macbook to a macbook pro?
I own a macbook and just bought a macbook pro and was wondering which cables to buy to use the old macbook as an external display. I've seen people use two laptops and drag a program from one screen to another but I have no idea what I need in order to do that. Would really appreciate some help! Thanks

I believe that is only possible using software and a hardware interface. The only way I know of to connect two computers is ethernet or firewire, I use both on a daily basis in my studio but I have never heard of two laptops being connected so that they share screens. That is possible using the new Macbook Pro and iMac with a thunderbolt cable, the iMac will act as a display for the Macbook Pro but I do not know of any other way.
