I had a bit of a dilemma, because none of my laptops has an HDMI output, only plain VGA. Oculus Rift unfortunately doesn't support analogue VGA, only digital HDMI or DVI connections.
However, I have found this:
After two weeks I have the device on my desk, just tested it with the Rift and it works great. If you need to connect Rift to an older PC with only VGA output, this is a decent solution that works, especially for $31. Certainly beats having to buy a new laptop
Just beware that you will have to replace the power adapter, the one shipped with the box has an US plug (two flat prongs). Fortunately the device has a standard 5V DC barrel jack at the front side, so no problem.
