 my laptop is not fast enough to run mach 3
but I got this pc tower that is strong enough to run mach I am not good at computers
so I was wounder could this be done.
is there some kind of way I can use my laptop as a screen and also use the keys only. and I could run mach from the pc tower
basically my laptop would act as a monitor with a keyboard.
can this been done and could you please let me know how to go about doing it.

It may be possible by using remote desktop but never tried it, problem might be delay between for example releasing a jog key and the machine stopping so would be very careful.
