Roku has Miracast, and apparently the newer laptops have it as well.

My laptop i and older model that got an upgrade to Win 10 with a SSD, and it doesn't have Miracast.

Kinda sucks.

I just did this the other day for a client. The Sony has google cast built in. Anything opened in chrome can be cast to the tv natively. Just make sure both are on the same network

I sent my laptop to roku this morning messing around. Even used it as a split screen so 75 sony was 2nd monitor. Used a hp laptop running win10

Wait, was this a built-in option on your Windows laptop? I Automatically showed Roku as a secondary display option?

Newer laptops that came built as 8.1 and 10 supposedly have Miracast on the motherboard chipset.

Older upgrade laptops do not.

Tried yesterday onsite w/ Windows 10. Chromecast works - slight lag. Miracast/wireless display shows as an available connection but does not connect.
