Handheld Monitor (HDMI / VGA) Answered

I work as a field technician for an IT company and 90% of the time, the servers on customer sites do not have monitors plugged into them.
This normally results in me having to scour the site for a spare monitor, or having to bring a laptop along just to remote desktop onto the computer that is sat in front of me!

I would love to make a small pocket sized monitor that accepts VGA and HDMI connections.

It doesnt need to have any intelligence or OS or anything like that, which is where I am becoming confused...

I am really new to the whole arduino / rPi scene and I have no idea if either of these would even be the right option for this kind of thing!
I do know that the rPi has a 7" TFT and a VGA module available (along with the on board HDMI connector) so I'm thinking this is the way to go regardless.

Any ideas?
