hey i appreciate the reply.  i know this information about the ports, however, i am still confused as to which one would be best used for my laptop capabilities.  i am currently using the display port ( mini) and im using a  mini  DisplayPort  to DisplayPort cord to do so.  Is this the best possible quality?
