So I recently received my Pi in the post and i'm now trying to think what to use it for.
I've had a look around and I quite like the idea of attaching a screen to it and using it as an RSS Reader/News updates etc..
The question I have is this, I have an old laptop lying around the house that I no longer use and wondered if I can make use of it. Basically I want to dismantle the laptop and utilise the screen, i'd then attach the screen to the Pi and mount it on the wall. I don't want to create a laptop from the Pi (I know there are a lot of posts about the LapDock, I don't want to use this, I just want the screen).
Is this possible? If so, how difficult would it be to achieve? (I want to avoid having to purchase lots of extra parts if possible, the odd cable is fine but I want to do it on the cheap)
Thanks in advance
