Lol! You need to connect HDMI to a PC monitor or HDTV.

You cannot connect two computers together with a HDMI cable...

It's an "outlet" actually, it's meant to hook your laptop to a bigger screen.

On both your ipad and laptop, the HDMI port is for output only (output towards a bigger screen). They don't take any input.
