That's not how they work. An external display still must be fed from your 
video device.

What do you mean by "ease my laptop work"? No change of the type you propose 
will have a noticeable impact on workload or performance, except in the case 
of installing a more powerful video device.


"Religion is autocratic, law is democratic, and science is
meritocratic. Religious logic is dogmatic, legal logic is axiomatic, and
science is pragmatic. Scientific theories can be altered by publishing a
paper with reproducible results, and political principles can be changed
every two to four years with an election, but if you want to change
religious principles you usually have to wait for a whole generation of
clergy to die."
