the 8890 has a DVI port, and it came out in Q3 2003!!! just now the AW's are starting to integrate them? the nice thing about having a dvi port is that you can always get the DVI-VGA adapter. I use it all the time at school. In design school we do a lot of projecting and although the projectors are typically VGA, its easily converted. The LCD 21" moniters here are DVI, and the picture is crisp.
