Can you use your laptop as a monitor via HDMi cable?

  1. We all know that we can use HDMi cables to connect our PS3 to a HDTV.

    My laptop can display HD and it also has a HDMI port.

    My question is, can I use my laptop as a HD monitor? I mean, if I plugged my PS3 via HDMI cable to my laptop, will it work like an HDTV? If yes, do I need some other softwares to make my laptop run as a monitor?

  1. I have yet to see a laptop with an HDMI that accepts input. Any video-in on a laptop is rare for that matter. You can buy an external adapter, but they can be expensive and it kinda defeats the purpose as laptops don't typically display 1080p.
