@lexluthermiester The company I work for sells thousands of mini PC's and I have yet to see a single one with HDMI. I wish they would include a third port for HDMI.

Yep, I install them all the time for my customers. It seems like displayport is the standard on mini-PCs these days. Which I guess makes sense, considering adapters to adapt it to HDMI/DVI/VGA are readily available these days.

@newtekie1 yeah, we sell the adapters as well. A lot of them.
Here is a funny thing, my wife just got a new mini PC for her new work at home job. It is 3 displayports. They also shipped 3 old school square 1280x1024 Dell monitors with no adapters. I was like WTF?

Then I saw the monitors had displayport! Old school square monitors with displayport. How is this a thing?

@newtekie1 We sell a ton of monitors and all of the models save one are wide screen (22" to 27" with one 55" model) but we do offer a 17" screen to be used with 19" racks and it is a 4:3 screen. So they are available but why make an employee use them is beyond me. Our employees have the option of using a single, dual, tri or quad setup of 24" or 27", (depends on what you do for the company). I myself have three 27" screens.

The only reason I can come up with is that they use this absolutely ancient software and if you maximize it, it won't work on a wide screen. Things are scaled by horizontal width, so if you maximize it to a wide screen everything gets cut off at the bottom and there is no scroll bar to get to the bottom.

I was absolutely amazed they still make brand new square monitors, and even more amazed they have Displayport.

That's the point. Why make them with DP when most will be used with an HDMI based display. Both should be included. It's bad design not to.

Luckily the DP to HDMI adapters are like $6.

It would make more sense to simply have the option built in, then a special cable is not required.

I disagree. The DP port is license fee free. And it is also easiest to adapt to any other output.
