Ye, just buy a monitor, hide the laptop and use another mouse and keyboard, hide the laptop so it doesn't look like uve got a pc. This way, when you need the laptop you have still got it.

Download a program called Putty frm www.google.com. Type Putty in the search and look for something that has to do with SSH. get the INTERNAL Ip of your local desktop computer, get the password, and SSH into it. You now have the power of whatever PC you logged into at the tip of your LCD screen. Have fun.
