    This footnote is from the user manual. Apparently there are some extra considerations if you happen to use a hard wired mouse and are also using the HDMI to DVI adapter.

    Sounds like there's nothing to worry about if you just use a usb mouse.

    Are you going to be using the HDMI to DVI adapter? If not, it's like joebeard said ... it won't matter.

    In that case (if I'm reading the footnote correctly) you want to use HDMI2 for the HDMI to DVI adapter.

    It doesn't matter one bit. The problem is clear in this picture, if you use a PS/2 keyboard/mouse and a HDMI to DVI adapter, there isn't going to be enough space. DVI ends are big.

    So if you must use that PS/2 connection and you need DVI then just buy a couple of these or these.
