Hi Kader,
This model has a VGA connection on the back of the product therefore you will be able to use it as a monitor for your computer. In order to switch from TV to the input from your computer use the source button on the remote and select the VGA input.
Best Regards

Hi poppygirl, the dongle is only as strong as your internet Wi-Fi,if your main Wi-Fi is in a different location this could be causing a weak signal,i have the same tv and dongle and my pc is in the same room and its fine,and thats off a mobile internet dongle on my pc.
