    Is it just me or does anyone else dislike the fact that apple incorporated lightpeak into their existing mini dvi port... seems like thats going to cause a lot of differing views for industry standards and is going to make us buy multiple different types of cables. It almost seems like they were trying to force the technology at a cheap cost without having to make new cases which will confuse the industry if some alternative interface is introduce. I def liked the idea of a magsafe/thunderbolt interface but I dont think every other manufacture will follow along with apples mini dvi port sooo apple sets themselves away from the industry once again...

    the fact that you called it a mini dvi port means that this thread needs to be closed.

    AMD has been putting Mini DisplayPort on their video cards for a while now and Toshiba, Dell and HP have laptops with Mini DisplayPort.
