I am in love! I downloaded the MaxiVista trial today because I am onsite at a client with 2 notebooks, but only the monitors attached to the machines. I needed more space!

MaxiVista is a product that allows you to extend your desktop without an extra monitor attached to the machine, but another computer with a monitor. This means if your have two laptops, you can make one of them a slave monitor to the other, giving you dual monitors. Amazingly the lag is almost not noticeable since it uses the network to communicate the screen. It also has a feature that allows you to quickly switch to the other notebook and use the keyboard and mouse on the main computer to control the slave. Amazing. I suggest you download the trial and test it. The full version of the product is $35.00. I am amazed.

Sounds a bit like Win2VNC, it uses a vnc server and just sends keyboard and mouse commands over. It might be slightly out-dated compared to MaxiVista but it'll do everything you'd want it to. And it's free ;)
