I mean it's a screen, right? I want this when all the TVs are taken, I would just connect the HDMI cable to the laptop and play/watch on it.
This probably sounds dumb to some of you but I've never thought about it until now. Please let me know. --- PSN: Jemi200 ::: NNID: Jemi200 ::: 3DS FC: 5129-0276-3428 Name: Jemi I Pre-Ordered an Xbox One and PS4 Within Hours of Each Other on June 10th, 2013

Short answer: probably not.
For a longer answer, you'll have to do some research. Some laptops have native HDMI input now.

Alienware is the only brand that does that that I can name off the top of my head. I'm sure there's others but you'll just have to look for your specific laptop. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez

Not without some soldering skills and an electrical engineering degree.
EDIT: You could get a USB TV tuner with an HDMI input but for the price of one of those you're better off buying a small monitor. --- 4670k | 2GB GTX 770 OC | 8GB 1600 9-9-9-24 | 120GB SSD | 1TB WD Blue | Win8.1 Pro http://i597.photobucket.com/albums/tt56/S26DG44B/PsythikViolet_Blooded.jpg

Not easily, not unless it has an hdmi in to start with which most certainly don't.
You could certainly jury-rig something with say a usb hdtv tuner with an hdmi in port though.

the HDMI on laptops is basically always only an output --- ^ this

There's a Sony model that does this. One of their higher end models.
I almost bought it for this very reason, before I settled on an Asus laptop. --- Stalking the GameFaqs boards since '04.
