    It has rarely been less than 2 ports for at least a few years now, hell I bought a motherboard for a batch of AM2 1600+ Athlon's, 5 years ago that cost £17 and it had 2 ports.
    Yeah i'd say it that pasts two years OEMs like Dell have been including a HDMI port as well as VGA.

    Just worth keeping in mind that an older 2nd hand desktop will probably only have the VGA port if it's not a custom build.
    You can get a graphics card for £20 either way so meh.

    Again with the laptops, not always the case. I've got an 11 year old Dell Latitude floating about somewhere, and that has 2 video ports.
