    No, not a single port on the MBP is linked to the LCD panel.

    You can input video to a macbook pro using a dongle, except that there will be a lot of latency between the video and what appears on the screen. This doesn't matter when watching static images, but would render any game unplayable.

    Buy a cheap external monitor with hdmi in, it'll be easier that way.

    Edit: I still stand by my cheap external monitor: that intensity extreme thingy is $300. A small 32" LCD TV can be had for that price.

    I might use my $300 for that Box so I could record video, play video through my existing TVs or Monitors, etc. As appealing as a fancy TV would be. YMMV.
