A friend's laptop screen has died. Toshiba say 1mo to get a replacement transformer (no guarantee this will fix it tho).

Considering portable screen replacements for her to travel with. VGA out on laptop. Any that stand out, either as portable monitors or as cheap enough she won't care if it dies early?

Would it not be better to get say a netbook? A laptop together with a "portable" screen sounds awfully bulky/heavy?

i assume this is a quick fix temp solution and that there is software/files/etc on the existing laptop that require work to relocate..
