Can you play xbox 360 on a laptop
  

hi,

I have recently purchased xbox 360 but unfortunately my TV isn't an HDTV so I can't play in HD which I've heard is much better. my laptop is DELL inspiron 9300 and has got a large screen but I don't know how to connect them.

You need a VGA in port laptop, otherwise there is NO way to connect your Xbox 360 to your laptop. Most laptops have VGA out and/or S-Video out, but no ports.

Adaptec released something called the Adaptec Gamebridge. It is a box that allows you to plug the RCA or S-Video cables directly into it, and then it connects directly to you computer through a USB 2.0 port. Graphics, however, are not enhanced, as the box claims. I use component HD cable to connect my Xbox to my television, and the graphics are significantly poorer quality then on my TV. The sound also skips. Check it out.

I use a TV tuner for mine that has composite and S-video in. I know that doesn't give you 720p, but you will be able to find a tuner.

Other thing you can do is, purchase an LCD monitor that has HDMI or component in, and also use it for your laptop.
