I was a bit worried about the installation of Maxivista. I figured that any software messing around with video, networking and two different operating systems was going to be a challenge. Well I was wrong Maxivista installed easily over my LAN with my main PC using XP and my laptop using Win 98. It took about 2 minutes and I was up and running!

Maxivista is a program that can increase your productivity by 30% or more. How can it do that? Trust me when you see  how much time you save by being able to have applications open in two monitors you'll be convinced. Plus this is the really good part using MaxiVista you don't need a new graphics card.

So what do you need to connect the monitors of two computers together with Maxivista? First of all you are going to need some way of connecting the two computers. It can be a wired LAN a high-speed Firewire connection, a wireless LAN. It can be done with a network card in both computers and a crossover-cable. Then you need in the Primary PC: Microsoft Windows 2000/2003/XP. In the Secondary PC: Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/2003/XP. That is all you need.

Think about this, don't you have a laptop that just gathers dust between trips? Maybe another computer that nobody uses? Well Maxivista will make it a useful tool for you everyday.

In conclusion Maxivista is a must have utility if you have another computer to hook it up to. The people at Bartels Media give you a fully featured demo good for 30 days or 100 uses. I'm positive that you will be convinced of it's usefulness the first day you use it.

Try It! Buy It!
