Use a MacBook with the main display off
Authored by: kroepke on Jun 10, '06 03:29:48AM

The real use for this is that the internal screen is not only not showing anything, but isn't using any resources either. Thus if you run a higher resolution on the external screen (as I do with my PowerBook G4 all the time) you do not take the performance hit of having to drive the internal screen, too.
Of course this only applies to the extended desktop mode. The external screen simply has all the video RAM for itself, and is thus faster...
