.... is this possible?

I've given up on trying to play games on my computer... my 4 year old integrated stock adapter isnt cutting it (obviously), and since I'm living in a dorm I have no room for a TV. So... with no TV and a lame laptop, I find myself wasting time with websudoku and spider solitaire...

considering my options: 1) get a social life and stop gaming 2) upgrade to a new laptop or 3) find a way to connect a console to my laptop.... option 3 seems like the path of least resistance.

as for ports on my computer...

that's what i have to work with... if I'm not mistaken there's a VGA port there... but I'm not certain if it sends or receives data. hopefully all of you could help me with this.

I'd like to connect a 360 to my laptop, and if it is possible, a link to the appropriate cord or its specific name would be greatly appreciated


thanks!
