Can I use my laptop as the only monitor of my desktop PC?

MaxiVista allows mirroring the screen content of your other PC only after you logged into Windows. This is why you would need a physical monitor. Otherwise, you would have no visual access to the computer before logging in and at boot or DOS level


from FAQs @ http://www.maxivista.../faq.htm#laptop

So if I understand the above correctly, the answer to the original question seems to be no, not with this application. Interesting piece of software though, I'll keep it in mind.
