Yeah. It actually seems to be a pretty common feature (assuming the laptop has an optional dock). That said, it's essentially just the same old #-VGA signal running out a DVI-A connector; not digital and thus no meaningful change in quality. A digital only DVI monitor -- like a Gen1 Cimena Display -- will go "what the heck is that?" when you plug in the cable. Apple's laptops (and Minis and...), on the other hand, are pushing DVI-D out their standard (but not often seen) Mini-DVI port. <sarcasm>Yet another one of those cases where Apple is forever behind PC vendors. I think it started with that clearly inferior disk technology called SCSI or their use of that crappy Motorola 68000 processor. ...or maybe that Woz video sub system. Not wait, that can't count as it predates that (always pushing the bubble) PC.</sarcasm>
