    So, I know this would be easy and I'm an amateur here, but if I had a side gaming desktop PC how easy would it be to use my S3 as its primary monitor in my lap (not even have another monitor)?

    Welcome to the forum

    Your Surface can output but not input. That's the short answer but you could do it through remote access of some type to/through the laptop.

    Yeah, I've seen that, and btw the reason I'd be doing this is because I like to sit back in a big fat la-z-boy with my surface in my lap. And I know I can use Steam streaming for this purpose if I'd like to, and, yes, I'd also get a real monitor for when I'm only gaming (not watching TV and stuff at same time lol)
