The T430u also features an HDMI output, and therefore its Mini DisplayPort does not support DVI/HDMI adapters. There is a lot of confusion about powered/un-powered or dumb/active cables. Technically a DP to VGA adapter cable is an “active/powered” cable, but it is seamless to the user, there is no additional power needed for the conversion. It just means that there is a D-to-A chip in the cable that converts the digital signal to Analog for the VGA input. Customers just need to have the cable. X230T features a full-size DisplayPort Full-line of DisplayPort adapters/cables
