Can I connect my laptop to an external monitor wirelessly?

by 4minnesotamom / June 12, 2012 10:27 AM PDT

Is it possible to connect my laptop to an external monitor and speakers wirelessly?

Is there a monitor with built in speakers that can be connected without wires (wireless)? Or, is there some sort of adapter that I can buy to connect my monitor and speakers wireless? I really am unsure about the available options.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Something like this.

I don't have any experience with this product, but be sure to read the reviews. It appears this product may not work well for graphic intensive applications (e.g. some gaming) but will work well with general web browsing/video streaming.

I have been using the older version of this (VGA only) for two years using primarily powerpoint--works great without a hitch. I also use for video clips with no problem. Full length movies can sometimes be a problem, depending on the distance between transmitter and receiver and whether HD or not. HDMI version would probably work even better.
