    Wow. Is this what it really is capable of? In terms of driving externals?

    http://www.appleinsider.com/article...r_set_to_be_part_of_displayport_standard.html

    Those resolutions are HUGE!!. 2160p, or quadruple 1080p... Wow... and at 30-bit color, with 120Hz refresh. Is that what our mini DisplayPort on the unibody MBs/MBPs can provide? Assuming our graphics cards are up to it, of course, and setting aside the very little amount of adoption in current systems? (Must be the understatement of the century)

    The article simply says that the mini-DP is now part of the DisplayPort spec. That doesn't mean the current hardware is capable of that. I could see that when the Macbooks move to Core i7 we will also see a DisplayPort 1.2 spec mini-DP connector.

    One can only hope that by then the DVI has finally died or new monitors come with DisplayPort connectors as well.
