Can I use a large monitor with my laptop?

Episode 1401 (1:35:54)

Don from Culver City, CA

Don dropped his laptop and the screen broke. He was thinking about buying a 20" monitor and plugging it in. Leo says he can do that, but he could also look on eBay and see if he can find the same model for cheap and have the screen swapped out. Absent that, turning it into a desktop replacement by plugging in a high resolution monitor is a good option.
