You can connect two laptops to a single monitor, depending on the monitor specifications. A monitor with two HDMI ports, can have two computers connected to it. You can switch to any one of them at a time, using control (remote or other). In case of a Monitor/HDTV monitor (example Samsung P2770), you can have one computer connected to PC input and other to DVI.

You can also opt to use KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) Switch to use a single keyboard to control multiple computers. Also check the synergy software. It also allows sharing your input devices between multiple computers/laptops.
