It is possible to connect a notebook to the HP TouchSmart 600 in order to use as a external monitor ? - a similar feature that is available on the new iMAC 27".
Thanks & regards

My problem is simple I need to buy a new PC but at the same time I what to get rid of the cables that are necessary on the tower/monitor configuration. The ideia to buy a all-in-one is cool, but I need to use a external monitor for my laptop.

Has anybody managed to connect a digital output from laptop to the 600-1050UK to use as an extended screen? If so is the quality any good?
I have a Dell laptop with DisplayPort and running through and DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor. Although the screen works there are a number of problems
a) The screen, although set to 1920x1080 is too big and gets clipped (when window is maximized) )(HDMI Overscan?)
b) The text does not seem very clear - almost as though this is not quite the right resolution
c) The colors are very poor and I cannot change color settings to get a good picture.
I have tried the Laptop with same adaptor on some Dell monitors at work and they work just fine on their HDMI input showing very sharp screens with good color.
I used MonInfo tool to get the EDID from the machine and all the expected resolutions are shown, nothing stands out apart from the slightly odd Color Characteristics (default color space sRGB, chromacity is quite different to other monitors)
Overall spend quite a few hours trying to get to the bottom of this
- updating to latest intel drivers (4 series card)
- reading EDIDs and checking/customizing timing calculations (DTD)
- checking underscan values (1842x1036 seems to be largest size desktop that "fits in the viewable area")
Has anybody tried Laptop DVI=>HDMI?
From what I have read it should not make a difference but I am running out of ideas
PS. I am not that impressed either by the HDMI in from the XBOX360 but I have nothing really to test the picture to the same level as text.

You said your computer only beeps. Now your screen is working? Please fill me in. If your screen is working then we can diagnosed your computer and find out what is excactly wrong with it by holding down f-2 key and getting into bios and do the hard drive test. frrw I belive your computer must be running correctly to view whats on other computer. Because you still need to excess the control pannell to open up the other computer and versus. Set up the wizard on both computers and pass words. frrw
