Hi, I recently purchased a gaming computer to replace my laptop and was wondering if there is some software I can use to effectively link the gaming PC to the laptop (preferably via Wi-Fi) to keep the portability within router range or Ethernet so I can seemingly make my ordinary laptop into a virtual gaming laptop emulator type thing :confused: making use of course of the laptops screen, keyboard, speakers, usb ports and touch pad.

If this is possible would there be any loss of quality due to the transfer of information or any other downsides or would it be as clear as if the games were running on the laptop itself? Many thanks

There's no such thing.

The closest thing would be a remote desktop connection which would be horribly laggy and completely unsuited.

I heard of a software called vmware, would this not do the trick?

Nope, that software is for installing operating systems on top of an existing operating system(called virtualization) not at all for what you are looking for.

As mentioned the only thing that may work is remote control software such as Remote Desktop, VNC, TeamViewer, GoToMyPC, or anything similar, but if those apps even work while gaming I do suspect the performance of the display to be too poor to be usable.
