Let me get this straight. I think you are asking if you can use a Notebooks display to play your PS2 on, correct? I imagine that there are certain Media Center Notebooks with the inputs for something like that, but at a hefty premium. You might look at some of the USB capture doo-hickeys, but you would probably have some lag that would make your gaming experience un-enjoyable. As for an LCD monitor, there are several from Dell, Samsung, and the like that do double duty as TV and Monitor and have built in tuners and inputs on the monitor directly. If you are asking for travel purposes , I would suggest the Initial 10.2" DVD player that Wal-Mart sells for $400. It plays DVD +/-R, DIVX/XVID on CD, and has inputs to use the screen as a monitor. I have used it to preview from my Digi-cam, DV-cam, and to play PS2 on trips. It is a really useful little machine for the money.
