X60s DVI!!!

2007-12-14, 22:26 PM
Hi, when will Lenovo provide a DVI support Ultrabase for X60s?  I would like to have one since I just bought a big size monitor. And the built-in Intel 950GM graphic chipset do support HDCP and DVI, so why not provide the extension?

I can't answer your question exactly, but one thing I know from experience is that TPs have always delivered good quality through the VGA port. Have a look at erik's review of the L220x here. One thing he does say is;

i compared DVI output from the T61p via advanced mini dock against VGA output from the X61’s onboard DB15 port.   while DVI output is better than VGA, the difference is marginal.   if a user did not have a way to readily compare the two side-by-side, i would be very surprised if he or she could notice a difference.

Definitely not marginal but it depends on your quality standards. Sorry to say that, but most of competing 12" notebooks supports DVI via dock.

the difference is marginal on the L220x when comparing DVI to VGA back-to-back.   other displays may differ but i stand behind my statement when referring to the L220x tested under the conditions stated in my review.

my quality standards are extremely high as my job requires absolute precision in everything i do, including designing machine-manufactured products measured by laser down to 1 billionth of an inch and checked with fluorescent dies under UV light for microfractures only able to be seen by high-powered microscopes.   seeing faults at a pixel level on an external display is child's play in comparison. ;)

back to the topic, the intel media accelerator 950 supports DVI output so i don't see why lenovo cannot create an updated ultrabase with DVI output or an X6-series thinkpad with an on-board DVI port.   a lack of on-board DVI is one of my biggest complaints with thinkpads.   while business users do still need VGA, there's no reason why they cannot use a DVI-to-VGA connector in such instances.   it's 2008 so let's lose the legacy ports and force business to advance with the times rather than hold back intelligent design and ergonomics.
