I just got my new PC, the monitor will be a while yet, can I use my working laptop as a monitor so I can set up my PC?

New HP Envy just arrived, monitor coming in a few weeks, Envy has Win8. I have a laptop, Toshiba Satellite L655 with Win7. Can I connect these, I have no VGA cables, and use the laptop as a monitor to get things set up?

Thank you for such quick replies, I will wait for the shipment to come, just very excited and want to start setting it up. I have no TV, do not watch TV.
Thank you again!
