Staying a bit ahead of the mobile curve, ATI and ASUS have announced the release of a notebook that will support the new HDMI standard that new displays and content on digital media will require for full quality. Starting out, ASUS's W1J will be released with pretty much everything else you'd see in a standard notebook (although with a beefy dual core processor inside) that is coupled with an Analog TV/Hybrid TV output that will allow the laptop to both view or display content in full quality. With the connectors it provides, the laptop itself could be used as a media machine.
Despite all the controversy behind HDMI, the industry and the manufacturers behind it are still pushing it, and people are becoming more aware of its presence and, ultimately, it's requirement to get the “most” of out future content. You can learn more about HDMI at hdmi.org.
