Try Synergy out, maybe? I've not used this software for probably 11 years, but when I did it worked quite flawlessly. It won't literally make your old laptop an additional monitor to your PC, but it will allow you to seamlessly switch your KB&M between your two machines.

EDIT: It actually is quite affordable if you are, in fact, planning on getting a lot of use out of this software. Basic is $29 USD one-time payment and Pro (only difference is SSL encryption) is only $39 USD one-time payment.

Synergy 2 (currently in beta) is supposed to be a lot more powerful:
