My laptop has a NVidia GT540M card with DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

Even in listings for the the Crossover 2720MDP model I'm looking at, WHICH HAS A DISPLAYPORT PORT.
So are they just being cautious, or what? Why would this monitor magically work with a desktop and not a laptop?
And another question: will DisplayPort alone be able to get the max 2560x1440 from this monitor? The 2720MDP monitor has a DP input...but again, the seller's info says "recommended with dual-link DVI"...it doesn't say explicitly whether, even though it has a DP port, DP will achieve the max 2560x1440 resolution.
There's shouldn't be any issue, I think. This guy here - http://goo.gl/ikpb7
had a Macbook(Pro I think) and he was able to get 2560x1440 over Display Port on the 2720MDP by using a simple Mini Display Port(MBP) to Display Port(2720MDP) adapter. Also, another user had an iMac and he was able to get 2560x1440 on the 2720MDP over Display Port by using the same http://goo.gl/jvjzv
adapter. Hope that helps.
