From the linked article:

IDisplay, the not-so-well loved iOS app to turn a tablet or phone into a secondary display, has come to Android. Now, with this app and an Android tablet or phone (v2.1 or better), you can extend your display.

Nice find - but a bare link doesn't offer much help to the reader trying to decide whether to follow it. Your post adds a lot more to the site with a little bit of context included. – JRobert May 4 '11 at 20:52

Sure, use a VNC viewer like this one on your tablet, install a VNC server on your laptop and off you go ;-)
