I have simulated a dual monitor system using my Mac-Mini and my first generation MacBook 13" laptop. I am running SSDR and the 6500 from the macbook and running DXLabs Suite on my Mini. I disabled Cat on the Macbook and use it on the Mini. I now can have my dxspot, logger and rig control running on one screen (Mac-mini), SSDR and 6500 on the macbook. Clicking on a spot on the Mini changes the radio. Really Neat!

Both Apples are running boot/camp/win 7

How do you handle the keyboards and mice (plural of mouse). Do you need two of each or do you have a slick way of only using one of each?

Each computer has it's own mouse and of course it's own keyboard. They are (the computers) interchangeable in that I can swap app's and just move my flexControl to the one running SSDR. My mini is cat5 connected to my router and the laptop is totally wireless. I can't tell any difference. I just wish the laptop had a bigger screen!
I discovered that I did not have to disable the cat oneither computer as each computer running the cat program has assigned a different com port.
