Mac OS X coolness

I've told people several times already that I'm very happy with my Powerbook, but once in a while I come across something that's just so cool I gotta share it with others. My Powerbook has a DVI output, but it came with a DVI-to-VGA convertor. Since I'm having an important presentation next thursday, I'd like to make sure I could connect to another monitor with a VGA connector. Because, if I can make that connection, a beamer shouldn't be a problem either.

Well, it does. And in a really nice, thought-through way, as I've come to expect from Apple. The external monitor is seen as an extra screen, instead of a replacement (like my former laptop used to do). And Keynote is just great. Not only really nice effects, but it even works great with the secondary monitor. It shows me the Presenter tool on my pb, while displaying the slides on the secondary display.

Actually, maybe a modern laptop with PowerPoint does the same, I don't know. But I really, really like the way this works. happy :)
