  • Displayport to DVI/HDMI

    Hi.

    Im looking to purchase a new laptop and the Thinkpad R500 is looking pretty tempting. Im wanting to have digital video out (not to fused if its dvi, hdmi or depending on the answer to this question display port). The R500 im looking at has Displayport, and I have spotted a displayport to dvi adapater, if Wikipedia is to be believed display port can pass a signal through to dvi/hdmi. Based on the statement on wikipedia that its not compataible with dvi/hdmi and the limited information I could find on Intel linux drivers and displayport. Would an adapter work, or would the drivers prevent this?

    This is the adapter im looking at http://www.shopbot.co.nz/pp-hp-displ...hp-179046.html
