Question use my laptop as another monitor and keyboard?

At home I have both a laptop and a PC. Is it possible for my laptop to be used as the keyboard/mouse and screen for my PC?

Nope. The inputs for the keyboard and mouse would have to the other computers mobo. You could always set up VNC and connect remotely.

You could say I've been around.

well yes and no
if you are running xp you can do remote desktop connection that is what i do and you can do simple stuff.
but it all depends on what you want to do with it.
try stuff out see if you like it.
