    laptop to sound system

    Hey guys I was just unsure looking in the forums on what is needed to connect a laptop to a touch screen lcd display. Im thinking about getting a laptop and an lcd instead of a desktop. And also Im going to be connecting it to a JBL amp and some subs.Soo what components does the laptop need to have to be able to connect it to a touch screen lcd and the sound system?

    Yes I did i am just unsure. For the touch screen I think it needs to have VGA out and usb. Unsure for the sound. I dont know if any laptop will provide good sound.

    Depends on the laptop. Search "audigy" if you think your sound is insufficient.

    well the sound doesn't have anything to do with the touchscreen... if this is your concern, you may want to change your title ? For the touchscreen you'll only need the vga and usb hooked up to the laptop.. and the touchscreen driivers installed in the laptop.
