My new Laptop doesn't have s-video out. However, it has a connector for a 2nd monitor.

"There is more to this than they are telling you. The cheap cable will only work if the chipset in your laptop supports outputting a composite video signal on one of the output leads. Not all graphics cards support this.

If yours does not, you will need a more expensive converter (~$100?) to convert the signal.

There is more information in the discussion here."

You might also want to check your TV. Many LCD TVs sold today have VGA, HDMI, and other PC type connectors so that they can be used as a monitor.
