mDP would make sense for most LCDs. But because CRT use is important for many people, VGA out with a strong DAC is extremely important. Perhaps a DAC with 5th order filters, like old Matrox GPUs. Most DACs on modern systems suck bad. Something capable of clean 400MHz with clarity comparable to an AMD 7970 would be OK. Clarity comparable to a Matrox Parahelia would be incredible.

I'd like to add that a 16:9 screen would likely be a deal-breaker for me. I would not mind 16:10, but I prefer 3:2 and 4:3.

Just quit. All of your suggestions are garbage. Please go buy a HP or a Dell and stay out of PowerPC hardware.

950M or 960M are faster than 270M with same TDP. I would want at least a 965M, though.

If you put mini DisplayPortyou can easly get miniDP to DVI-I adapter.

YOU CANNOT USE THOSE ADAPTERS WITH ANY QUALITY MONITOR. They ONLY SUPPORT TINY RESOLUTIONS AND REFRESH RATES. READ THE THREAD BEFORE POSTING.

Oh, and your other point is dead wrong, too.
Here's some DVI to HDMI cords on Amazon:

And the DVI to DP cords:

Again, CONSIDER READING before posting.

I request notebook contains "full sized" built in internal keyboard equipped with numeric keypad. Also, a wide screen monitor is nice. Along with other common features such as built in SD slot, etc. Thanks. :)

Why would you want a wide screen? 4:3 is WAY better than a small TV strapped to the laptop.

Hi,

what about 13,3'' display - first you need to gain attention from professionals and students and both require portability and ease of usage in limited space e.g. table in caffe bar, server room, school desk, lerning room, etc.? In this case 1920x1080 is more than enough - again who is in first target group?

4:3 is great as we old schools got used to it, but it's past and will never come back in reasonable price another plus for 16:9(10) is more natural to human eyes  :o Also new kids are not familiar with 4:3, because from birth they are surrounded with 16:9.

If there will be only one port then mini DisplayPort is must to have! If there is physical and financial space then HDMI + mini DisplayPort is nice to have - but I will drop this solution. From my point of view mini DisplayPort is enought you can alwaya attach miniDP to HDMI adapter but wih miniDP you have option for multiple displays daisy chaining.

One more propositions is to go absolutely  with non glossy display.
The screen should be glossy. The output should be DVI-I. The screen must not be 16:9. 16:9 will be a dealbreaker. 16:10 would be Ok, but I'd prefer 4:3.

Perhaps the chassis manufacturer could make two cases: one for a 16:9 screens and one for a 4:3 screens. The rest of the laptop could be exactly the same. If this laptop has a screen wider than 16:10, it will be a deal-breaker for me. 4:3 is the best AR for laptops, period.

What thickness? How much thick do you think these ports are?  ;D

And on the rear side of laptops there is always lots of void surface that can be used for adding connection ports and other useful thingies.  ::)

Arent a more USB ports more useful than DVI ports in that case? or 2 or 3 Mini display ports instead of one DVI port?

The laptop should have an internal RAMDAC and VGA/DVI-I port for use with CRTs. External active adapters cannot provide sufficiency bandwidth to drive a good CRT.

At least do not make the screen on this 16:9. If you must have a widescreen, choose a 16:10 panel, such as a 1920x1200 or a 2880x1800 that is used in Retina MacBook Pros.

I prefer 4:3. It's my preference. I like having height over width.

Refresh rates do matter on LCDs. A 120Hz LCD can display up to 120FPS, while a 60Hz LCD can display up to 60FPS. More FPS means that motion will be smoother. I can tell the difference between 90Hz and 60Hz on a LCD, so it is definitely noticeable. There are plenty of true, non-intrepolated, 120Hz LCDs for desktop monitors and some for laptops.

Motion blur is disgusting and ruins the image quality. I want to be able to scroll down a page without text degenerating into a mess. If you like motion blur, turn strobing off, but give people who don't like blur the option to strobe.

I recommend using 4:3 display in the notebook. Would that be possible? Also, would it be possible to use a 120Hz display? What about strobing? Could you do a larger, 17" or 18" screen? Can the display be made glossy? If it is possible to do a custom LCD, I would use a 2560x1920, glossy, 120Hz, strobed display. If you can't do a custom screen, I would get the 1440x960 screen that 15" PowerBooks used, remove the matte coat, and run the refresh rate as fast as it can go.
