Question from Jim L.: I recently bought a new iPad Mini because I needed a tablet with cellular connectivity.
What I’d like to do going forward is use my old Wi-Fi only iPad II as a 2nd monitor for my Dell laptop. Is that possible? And if it is, how expensive would it be?
Rick’s answer: Jim, it is entirely possible to use your iPad as a 2nd monitor for your laptop. It’s also easy to set up, and quite inexpensive.
There are actually free apps that do this, but the one that I recommend costs about $10. It’s called MaxiVista, and it’ll createa a video connection between your laptop and iPad via Wi-Fi. There are no wires to connect. Just make sure that both devices are connected to a Wi-Fi network, then run the app!
You can read more about MaxiVista right here.
I hope this helps Jim. Good luck!
