Yes, you can connect your LCD screen to the PowerBook. It has a VGA connector/adapter at the back.
While you have it connected, take a look at the monitors control pane (Under system preferences) and you will see that there is a way to designate which screen is the primary, whether the image is mirrored or whether it is an extension of the desktop. (I cannot remember the exact terminology but the help file and the book that came with the PB will explain)
Once set up, you have a "giant" desktop that is spread across both monitors. Just drag your pallets/tools off one monitor onto the other and away you go.
hope this helps
Hi, I've just got a new BenQ 17" LCD for my PC and was wondering can I also hook it up to my PB (G4 15" 1.5ghz 10.3.7) when needed..?
What I'm really wanting to know is can (& how) my PB support 2 screens at once - a dual screen set up? So when I'm using photoshop I can work on one screen and have my pallets on the other or just drag & drop between them.
I'm just starting my search on this and thought I'd ask you guys.
