two monitors, two displays, one PC

In the last 4 months I bought a new monitor to replace the one that 
clunked out in me.  I am currently using it with an old PS2 type 
keyboard and mouse attached to a creaky old desktop that will eventually 
be replaced.  Likely I will want to replace it with a laptop with wifi 
and a lot more memory and hard drive so that I can take it with me.  Can 
I still use the old monitor as a second display?

Can this be done?  Is it done?  What are the issues?
