Re: laptop as monitor

That's not possible. You need a monitor or a tv that can be used as such.

Connecting to PCs

If you are trying to connect them physically in order to extend their monitor, It won't work. However you can connect them logically by using the apps like: Idisplay or Air display but they are not effective as you expect.
