[QUOTE]\nDisplayPort was a good idea that missed its window of opportunity. By\nforcing the issue, Dell and other DisplayPort backers are only going\nto bewilder consumers. If you're in the market for a new laptop,\ndesktop, or monitor in the coming months, be sure to take a close look\nat the connectors on the back. How irritated would you be to find that\nthe best connection on your new high-end monitor won't work with the\nbest connection on your high-end notebook?[/QUOTE]\n\nThanks for the info. I would choose a computer with HDMI because\nthat's what my HDTV uses and it seems to be the standard with home\ntheater too.\n\nI would like to know why HDMI cables cost so much though.
