    Hi Guys & Gals,

    I'm currently in Afghanistan with my trusty rMBP and I was wondering if I bought an Xbox would I be able to connect it straight into the HDMI port and use the retina display?

    Or is the HDMI port an out only port?

    Don't fancy buying one and then having to buy a screen on top!

    Cheers,

    Andy

    Sorry... it is out only. Nice idea though.

    You need to "borrow" one of those overhead projectors your Lt. always uses for boring Powerpoint presentations. :D

    Nope, on about 99% of laptops, video ports are output only.

    Sony sells a portable 30" display for use with the PS3; it also works with the Xbox 360.
