    If you look in the package contents of the new bootcamp. You can find a fiolder for intel chipsets that contains installers for HDMI and for HDMI audio codec. Can we say new monitors and new intel boards using HDMI soon.

    While it might be nice, DVI is still the current standard for newer monitors, which is basically HDMI - Audio. VGA is still even very common, although newer monitors usually include both. Unless Apple comes out with a true HTPC (which might be a few years, since they just released the :apple: TV and an HTPC would eat into sales & vice-versa) or allows an HDMI input from :apple: TV to Apple Computer, I'm not so sure where this would fit into Apple's current offerings. But I could be wrong.

    When you use Vista in the new Bootcamp, does it allow for HDCP through DVI on existing Mac products? With Vista at least (and probably eventually also other products), HDCP is going to be very important for users. Infuriating but true.
