What I am looking for is a VGA in to USB out adapter. This could be used for running the screen from, say, a desktop on the monitor of a laptop. Thus eliminating the need for a monitor for the desktop. I believe I have found one on Froogle, but i was wondering if there were any others that someone knows about, and that might be cheaper.
You're really wasting your time with all that. Tube type monitors can be had for as litle as $20.00USD. 21" can be had for $35.00USD.
There are ways to use the lappy as your primary monitor but all of them are laggy and complicated to operate and the driver software just eats ram for breakfast. Spend a few bucks for a real monitor.
LCD's save space but at the same time can do serious damage to your wallet. I have a network of shop owners that if you let me know what city,state your in maybe I can hook you up. In the US that is. Let me know something. Some of these guys have used stock they're dieing to get rid of.
