Why do you need a capture card on a single-PC setup? There are a few good reasons to use a capture card in a single-PC setup, but they are not very common.

Otherwise, it's MUCH faster and lower-load to just use Game Capture, or Window Capture with Aero ON. Using the capture card is very likely to actually HURT performance instead. Game/Window Cap pull directly from the GPU buffers, instead of having to wait, and on top of that use the much slower and resource-intensive DirectShow interface.
Short version: Stop using the capture card, unless you want to play a console game. You've wasted money.

But as Ferretbomb said, using a capture card on a single-PC setup is largely useless (unless you want the effect of monitor capture on fullscreen games, or are trying to capture games that can't be hooked with Game capture for one reason or another).
The XCAPTURE-1 is a great capture card, but it only works if yo have an Intel or Renesas USB 3.0 port. You can check your system by going into the Device manager and looking for an Intel or Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller. If you have it, then you're good. The setup would be the same: plug the XCAPTURE-1 into the laptop, and the HDMI cable into the XCAPTURE-1, and close the primary output with the output that is going into the capture card. The i7 in that laptop should perform decently enough.
