-Can also stream 3D through the 60GHz WirelessHD
-All laptops have VGA + DisplayPort + HDMI 1.4
-All laptops also come with Klipsch Speakers. M14x comes with mini subwoofer in it
-M17x and M18x come with HDMI input so you can use built in speakers and display for consoles
-HDMI input is HDCP compliant. Windows doesn’t recognize the input feed coming in so you cannot record. Its just a “dumb display and a dumb set of speakers” taking input
-Graphics switching (Shutting off external video card for battery life) is supported on M18x
-Up to 3 hours battery life on M18x with switchable graphics
