Honestly, why are people even trying to use laptops as screens! Buy a screen! Why would you even want to play a PS4 or any console for that matter on a low resolution laptop screen! Even better you're asking if you can use you're Ipod as a screen! Are you for real? a 4" screen to play a high resolution gaming console on... Wow. Just wow. Buy a screen, or don't get a PS4 Simple.

You can't.. Laptop video connectors (HDMI or VGA etc.) are output-only, to drive an external monitor. They are not capable of displaying video from an external source - or at least not without buying an external video capture unit that converts to USB or Firewire. A monitor or small TV with HDMI is probably cheaper. (A monitor with DVI input will accept HDMI signals, you just need an HDMI <> DVI cable or connector block; the video connects straight through but DVI does not have sound).
