Difference between a laptop with HDMI input and laptop with HDMI output.

While the Alienware have both, most laptops have only one, the HDMI output.
HDMI output are ports that enables the laptop serve as a media source to a Screen.
For example, if you want to play a game, on your laptop and you want to display it on your TV for people in the room to watch, you can use the HDMI output on your computer to serve as a Media source to the TV.
In this same case, the TV serve as the device with the HDMI input.

Why then do some persons find Laptops with HDMI inputs.

These persons are maybe those that wanna share a screen maybe while playing game.
If one has a laptop with HDMI output and the other has a laptop with HDMI input, the one with output will therefore have to be the one to load the game on his PC.
