I've been wanting to try out a dual monitor setup for some time now but don't have a second monitor. But what I do have is a Toshiba Tablet PC that normally is not being used at the same time as my primary PC.

Enter the MaxVista software. This is a software only solution that requires a simple network connection between your primary PC and a second machine that is going to be used as the second display. I install the Maxvista software on my primary PC, run a little viewer software on my tablet and now have a second monitor next to my primary one! No fuss, no muss and the great thing is that I can individually set the resolution on the second display to match the native resolution. My tablet is running at 1400 x 1050 so using the software I get full use of that screen real estate.. Very nice indeed. 

Definitely recommend that anyone who is interested check it out @
