Display port doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I was thinking about buying a MBP but the fact that it doesn't have HDMI is stopping me from it. I have a receiver that outputs lossless audio and a tv that both do not have a display port input. Is Apple not accepting HDMI to force you to buy overpriced accessories in order to use a crippled form of digital output? I'm not trying to say HDMI doesn't have its problems. It has HDCP and Handshaking issues that can cause problems. It also has a royalty fee that MAY deter manufacturers ( but doesn't seem like it with its wide adoption).
