    To bad i didn't get a laptop with this :) I would have loved to have two external monitors in addition to the laptop screen. As is it can only support 2 monitors total.
  3. In order to run v1.2 at full res will require a very good graphics card. Some laptops may already do it, but not the mainstream consumer models. Just thinking about 3D gaming at those resolutions is ... is... Gimme!

    Would a DisplayPort hub be required to drive multiple DisplayPort monitors using only 1 cable from the computer? I have 2 Dell U2410 monitors that already have DisplayPort inputs.
