Hi, what kind of budget are we talking?

are we talking 1080P with 7.2 sound being streamed or are you happy with just normal SD?

High definition will cost you more for wireless transmission.  If you have HDMI on both ends, this Brite View BV2500 will work: http://www.amazon.com/Brite-View-BV-2500-Wireless-Transmitter-Receiver/dp/B0026FCGLI

For VGA connections, this Atlona AT-AiR3 will work: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/810553-REG/Atlona_AT_AIR3_AT_AiR3_PC_to_HDTV.html

I don't play computer game and my budget is around $100.
I am even thinking some sort of wireless external storage space that connects to TV and I can download there and access movie files from my laptop.
I have a fairly new 55" samsung lcd, so it has HDMI port.

>I can download there and access movie files from my laptop.

If you have a laptop with a wireless network connection, why don't you just use that?  Download to your laptop and connect it to the TV.  If you don't have enought storage on your laptop, get an external USB drive and connect it to your laptop.

Your going to need some kind of reciever anyway for the TV that is going to need power so im afraid you have least one cable there even if you do manage to hide the box behind the TV.

For $100, I'm not sure what you'll be able to do what you want.  You don't want anything around the TV, so a computer is going to have to send it to the TV, which means something like the devices I posted.  If you want to do it cheap, you will have to give up the cable restriction, or live with a thin HDMI cable.
