as far as i remember there are 2 different types of display ports, mini which you will find on Macs and the standard size you will usually find on everything else.

Becareful as the standard DP can sometimes be mistaken for a HDMI connection and for computers/monitors a standard DP will be the more common. confirm what your devices have before buying.

yes something like them but my laptop does not have a display port only hdmi iwas hoping find some thing with dp in and hdmi out
So surely you mean hdmi to display port?
And not display port to hdmi?

Which contradicts your first post.

If your laptop has hdmi out then should you not be looking for a hdmi to dp?

Does your external monitor/screen have a dp connection?
