For what purpose are you trying to connect the two devices? Display/networking etc.?

well for one thing most laptop screens are pretty hi-res and crisp. The lcd is going to make the games look very choppy since i am sure most games are around 800x600ish from a tv perspective. As far as doing something like that you will need some kind of video in... i don't know how you could go about doing something like that, i have never heard of it being done.

if the laptop display adapter doesnt have video input, the only way i know of to connect something to the laptop to view it would be threw a capture device. maybe someone else has a better idea?

for example...

note- i just picked any device i saw for an example, i dont know if thsoe specific ones are good or not. but u get the picture.
