Most reasonably new laptops allow the display to show in both places.
(There may be limitations on the resolution to accommodate this.)  

The original question was about showing different things on each
monitor:  the console visible to the speaker, and graphics visible to
the audience.  I don't know of any PC laptops that do this, but I
think some Macs can.  At least that was my interpretation of a minor
flap before a presentation at UWO where the projector showed the
desktop and the laptop screen showed the stuff the audience was
supposed to see.

I think to do it on a desktop PC you just need to add an extra video
