    You can use any reasonably old device running Windows 10 as wireless display via Windows Connect feature. It works great! Older devices can only act as receivers, though, and 802.11ac adapters on both devices involved are strongly recommended.

    For light productivity use, that might be ok or get you by.
    But that does not allow use of devices that can only output video by direct connection. Like the example a few comments back, such as a PS4.

    No point in arguing the utility of such a feature. It would only be beneficial.
    Sadly though, it does not look like it will ever be a reality. One can dream...

    I wasn't trying to say no one could find utility, but it was tried before and didn't really catch on. Add to that there is extra expense, engineering, physical space on the board, an extra port, etc, the demand has to outweigh that and I don't believe it does.

    I heard a linux os named "LineageOS" who makes custom roms for mobiles are working on a desktop varian, that can run any application of windows and linux!
    Anyways the lineageos is oneof the best mobile os I've flashed on my phone, and if these rumors are true, we all are going to be obliged!

    That would be awesome. I'll be interested to see what happens with it.

    I just want a power cord that doesn't come unplugged so easily. I had an ASUS for about a week that clipped in, loved it (didn't realize the BIOS was so locked down you couldn't tweak the raid). but other than that the connectors seem to pull out so easily.
