Subject: [Chugalug] Laptops as monitors

Ok - weird question - but is there any reason it would be impossible to bui=
lt a laptop that had a video-in port that went directly to the monitor?
I'm not really concerned about which format (HDMI / VGA / whatever).just wo=
uld be crazy hard to design it that way?  (I'm not even asking about hackin=
g an existing laptop - I mean if a manufacture wanted to do it=2C would it =
be super expensive or difficult?)


I just feel crazy having all these screens around me - tablets=2C laptops=
=2C phones=2C etc - and I can't use them for anything other than what they =
are.- Chad W. Smith
