DVI, S-Video, VGA, HDMI, or DisplayPort?
Where are we going with display interface connectors? VGA will eventually get replaced. I seem to be finding fewer notebooks with S-Video ports. What will become the next "standard" for laptops and mobile devices? Will the smallest connector win?
Will it be the bulky DVI? HDMI? Or DisplayPort?
Will future laptops have 4 or 5 types of display interface connectors? I'm mainly thinking about tiny MIDs and UMPCs. The OQO model 02 has a HDMI port. The new Lenovo Thinkpad X301 has a DisplayPort.
