One caveat: Plasma screens, like CRTs, can be vulnerable to burn-in if a static image is displayed on them long enough. (Yes, I've seen it happen.) Not a problem if you're running fullscreen videos; may be a problem with some games or other programs which have relatively stable areas of the screen. Frankly, that's part of why plasma is the cheapest of the available large-screen technologies.

Yes, if your TV has a RCA input. Just make sure your laptop is set so that when you start it up and plug it in it will display to screen 2, not screen 1. This control can be found under properties when you right click on your desktop. Hope this helps!
