For anyone not aware: LVDS is the internal display panel on a laptop. So
if your system's a laptop, it has one; if it isn't, it doesn't.

DVI and VGA are the two main types of external monitor connectors. 'VGA'
is the traditional, old-skool, analog connector also known as D-SUB. .

DVI is the newer type which is usually used for digital connections (but
can also carry analog). Looks like . Adam cares about
what ports are present on the machine, not what monitors you have or
don't have connected.
