There is no eSATA on any currently produced Thinkpad that I'm aware of.  The W500 does have firewire though.

 

W500 has a DisplayPort connector, which is actually better than HDMI (can handle higher resolution).  Apparently the spec says it can carry audio as well but I don't know if the Thinkpad supports this portion.

 

You can theoretically buy DisplayPort to HDMI adaptors if you needed one for video though.
