How to Use Laptop as Monitor for Mac Mini

The Mac Mini is a blind computer that must be connected to a display. If your company does not have a spare monitor, you can use an Apple laptop as a display for your Mac Mini. You are unable to connect the laptop to the Mac Mini directly, as you would use a standard display with a VGA or HDMI connector. You must first set up wireless screen sharing. As long as all of the devices are on the same network, you can remotely operate a Mac Mini from your laptop.
