I haven't seen that; the ones I've seen come with HDMI rather than 
DisplayPort. That doesn't mean that all of them do, but if I'm spending 
I'd rather have an HDMI port. DisplayPort never really caught on with 
anybody other than Apple, and it strikes me as a standard that has no 
good reason for existence; what technical advantage does it have over 
the more widely adopted HDMI? (I'm prepared to be enlightened if it 
actually has one.)
