this may sound like dumb question but I saw a windows 7 commercial where a man was with a laptop. the movie playing on his laptop was also playing on his TV at the same time. do I need an extra piece of equipment or program to achieve this?

Thank you

A Media Extender. You will need a digital output (DVI, HDMI) to push out the signal.

yeah, you need some form of media extender such as the Western Digital WD TV Live HD Media Player or some other windows 7 capable media receiver or Media Center Extender

you can also just hook up a computer directly to the tv (assuming you've got the proper connections). there are even a few TVs (having trouble finding links) that have built in media receivers
