15" LCD monitor. What to do?

So, I got this old ThinkPad 600, I really want to take the monitor off and make some use of it, but Im not quite sure what to do. So far, what I've thought is Digital Picture Frame. Possible screen for my Xbox 360? (Good idea?) Another monitor for my PC but I kind want to just use it for widgets like time, RAM usage, calendar and organizer. and extra window space. (good idea?) Other than that, I'm not sure. It's not often I get to do something with a monitor, so I'm at a loss of what to do. Any suggestions would be great.

you can't take the monitor off
Umm, you can, just unscrew it and snip the wires.
i meant the you can't make it work without the circuitry inside the laptop
Oh, I see... Sorry.

If the laptop still works you may be able to use it as a second monitor- there are guides around the internet if you look around.

That sucks, I was really hoping to do something with it. Thanks for telling me.

I agree, a digital picture frame is a good way to go. Another good use for an old laptop, is to turn it into a 'jukebox' if you have enough hdd space for your music, load it up, load up your fav music app. Set the music app to start up automatically. Then, do a simple rewire, so that some keys are still usable, and map those as play, stop etc..
