I would like to hook up my laptop to my desktop. I am basically trying to use the laptop as a monitor (desktop is CPU only). How can accomplish this?

Here's one option but I don't think that it is ideal.

Another option is to connect the PC to the laptop with an Ethernet cable. Then run VNC on both machines (click here) and connect to the PC from the laptop with the VNC Viewer and put it in fullscreen mode. You can then completely control the PC with the laptop controls. You don't even need a router or any other hardware - I did this with 2 computers at work connecting them both together with a straight LAN cable.
