Buy this: Village Instruments : ViDock

And buy a power supply.

Lastly, buy a graphics card.

You will need an express card for the adapter to work.

You don't need a PCI-E Slot for your laptop. You need this (If your laptop even has one): ExpressCard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If your laptop doesn't have one then you're out of luck. Better find yourself a desktop :)
