I don't see why not ?
Read this info I'm giving you, read what I highlighted and colored.

APU's dual graphics - how to enable Crossfire? - TechSpot Forums
Q1: What is AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics?
A1: AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics is an innovative new technology exclusive to AMD platforms that allows AMD APUs and select AMD Radeon™ discrete graphics cards to work together; when combined, the platform delivers stunning high definition and DirectX® 11 & DirectX® 10 capabilities that are better than either device alone. Currently, AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics is supported on the AMD A-Series APUs in conjunction with select AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 series graphics cards used under the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
Q2: How do I know my AMD Radeon™ HD Graphics card is capable of supporting AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics?
A2: There are two main ways to find out if your system can support AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics. One, you can go to AMD Radeon Dual Graphics
and get the latest information, including all supported discrete GPUs. Two, if you purchase an AMD A-Series APU for your desktop PC as an individual processor-in-a-box (PIB), the right hand panel will show the supported discrete GPUs for that particular APU model.
Q3: I just bought an AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 Series graphics card. How do I configure my PC to take advantage of AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics?
A3: To take advantage of AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics, you must use a compatible AMD A-Series APU to pair with your supported AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 Series card. After installation of your graphics card, install the latest AMD graphics drivers. After driver installation, the option to enable AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics should become available in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center.
Once installed, go into the “Performance” section of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center and check the box that says 'Enable Crossfire™' - this will allow the AMD A-Series APU graphics to work in tandem with the select AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 Series GPU installed for increased graphics performance.
Q4: Where do I plug my monitor in to get the best performance when using AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics technology?
A4: For best performance, AMD recommends plugging the display into your discrete graphics card. This will ensure that even applications that do not take advantage of AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics will still be able to run on the faster graphics card in your system. However, to be more accurate, we recommend that you plug your monitor into the AMD Radeon™ graphics with the higher model number. If that is your APU, plug into the motherboard, if it is your discrete graphics card, plug into that.
What catalyst means is trying to ask you:
Do you have another dedicated ATI graphics card on your desktop
that can extend into another monitor or not ?
Doesn't hurt to try even if you have a nvidia gfx or GT based card,
Least that will happen your desktop or lappy may refuse each other based on hardware and resolution problems.
Plug it up to the monitor, make sure you the resolution is matching that of the notebook.
On the lappy, hit screen number 2, just do it like your crossing firing on a normal desktop.
Hit apply, it will flicker twice and you should be able to see your notebooks screen extend on to your desktop.
If the sizes seem abit off work with it some until you get something you can like and work with.
