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.
