Default New Macbook Pros out today--HDMI support

Hey,

I don't know if this is new or not, but new Macbook Pros are out today with I5 and I7 processors, but they also mention HDMI support from the mini display port (with an adapter). I didn't know if this is a big deal but I thought it might have versatility with people using satellite LE, or other configurations where they need more monitors, etc. I've seen a lot of discussion about that.

Maybe you guys could check it out and see if this makes anything easier (I don't do much post).


EDIT: These also apparently have dual graphics cards also, though mainly that's for saving energy when using the battery. And 15 inch model has available high res display. Oh, and solid state drives available.

The last gen can do Mini DisplayPort to HDMI, just didn't send sound out as well, only video.

I do this all the time.

Don't know if this is a big deal or not.
