The HDMI port on a laptop is HDMI out for connecting to an external monitor, which you have already discovered. You can connect it to a TV that has HDMI connectors. Monitors with HDMI connectors can be found at sites like http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007617%204017&IsNodeId=1&name=%24100%20-%20%24200
Wow a response! :-)
I was beginning to think that this post had stumped everyone! :-)
Thanks for the reply Ken, much appreciated, and thanks for the link. Most of the HDMI-capable monitors, however, are bigger than 17", which as a "mobile solution" is not really ideal! :-)
I'm kinda looking for more of a handheld option, and the only 7" model on newegg doesn't have HDMI input.
Oh well, the search continues.
Thanks again for the response.
