Depends. Does your laptop have a video in jack? If so, you can send the video from the xbox to it, if you have the right cable.

There are several kinds, so it's best to consult your owner's manual to see what you have. It is unlikely that your laptop will have video in capacity unless it has a TV tuner/video capture function. You can buy PC cards and USB devices that provide this functionality if you don;t have it already. Even if it is able to accept video in, your machine may not be powerful enough to display the video without a significant lag. This would make gaming difficult.
