How to Use iPad as Monitor for Windows PC and Mac

by Fahad Saleem

Literally billions of people use Windows PC around the world. Windows PC is the productivity juggernaut: whether it’s heavy document processing, making presentations, running complex coding algorithms and IDEs; we are just used to Windows computers. But what if you don’t want to take the hefty Windows PC or laptop with you everywhere? What about duplicating the Windows PC display screen at something smaller, slicker and fancy? Yes! I am talking about getting the Windows PC display on a tablet—-more specifically, an iPad. Duet Display has recently launched a great new program which lets you use iPad as a monitor for your Windows PC. No complex process, no support issues. Duet Display app supports Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines.

All you have to do to enjoy iPad as a monitor for your Windows computer is to connect the iPad with your Windows PC via lightning connector. You could buy an extended lightening connector if you want to increase the range of portability.

Duet Display lags in some of the apps when you extend your Windows PC display across an iPad, but the lag is not much noticeable. The speed also depends upon your PC performance. Duet Display is best for people who want to enjoy reading eBooks, movies on their sofa, bed without putting the whole laptop on their lap.

1024 x 768 resolution is the limitation put by Duet Display app. The working mechanism is pretty easy: just plug and play and enjoy. Duet Display app costs $9.99, but I think it’s worth it. The app is also available for Mac, which means you could use iPad as monitor for your Mac too.
