This sounds interesting. Too bad I want (and can't afford otherwise) my current laptop to last another three years before my next upgrade.
But what I've been wanting, is an expresscard HDMI (video + hi-res audio) out, but if hdmi audio out is only just about to hit desktops, and we don't even have an expresscard HDMI video or *anything* out for laptops, I'm not getting my hopes up. It is a vain dream...and probably a dream delayed by all that protected path crap.
but this sounds interesting...any links/more info?
