    You can also just use remote connection to the desktop from the laptop, will be almost the same thing.

    There are several programs to do this, MaxVista is a pay one, it was the first one I ever heard of for doing this. Another one is ZoneOS Zonescreen, it appears to be freeware.

    These work, but slow down the video by a lot. It's good for basic programs, not much else.
  4. Guys I had same thoughts several times but now I found that some laptops do support video input? Check this video – it works like hdmi display for iPhone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw914ynPOMw
    Do you know what notebooks can do this?
