I've never seen one made. SDVO requires an x4 PCI-E slot, and the only
ones I've found are for desktop machines. I'm not entirely sure that you
could use a express card slot for this purpose either, I tend to think
this unlikely.

You get the internal LVDS and the external VGA (or DVI if you're lucky),
and sometimes TV out as well, as is the case with the 6320.
