To the skeptics out there: DisplayLink has had USB 2.0 video technology for years. It works great and it does 1080p just fine. I own some of thier early hardware.

Of course there are limitations. Desktop apps and web browsing work fantastic. Watching moderately and heavily compressed video looks great too (ex: YouTube). Where you hit limitations are with high graphic games and with massive video (ex: unencrypted BluRay ).

you only need an 800Mhz single core computer for 720p video with WinXP, and an avc codec; though a 1,2Ghz CPU is recommended.

I can run 720p mkv's and mp4's perfectly fine on my 1,66Ghz dualcore laptop, even with powersaving mode on (800Mhz per core).
