Default Legend ??'s - Laptop to TV

We are going on the Legend soon and I would like to use our laptop to watch a couple of movies.
I have some questions:
#1 - Does the Legend have flat panel TVs that would allow me to connect my laptop to them?
#2 - Will I be able to switch the TV's input so that I can do this or is the TV's input "locked"? (Apparently some ships have either electronically or physically locked their TVs, and do not allow for AUX or AV switching)
#3 - Does anyone have a picture of or any info on the TV input jacks, so that I can bring the correct cord/adapter?

Thanks!
Ready

It depends on what your laptop has for an output. I recommend taking an HDMI connector, most newer laptops have this port and a connected TV will be seen as a "projector" and you can use it as a separate screen.

We use my laptop on our TV as a DVD player because it is blueray. It connects with an HDMI connector.

By the way - I have never noticed a TV having the inputs "locked" although it would not surprise me. They certainly lock down their computers in their internet cafes.
