How long is the cable and am I tied to using the one that comes supplied?
I want to have the monitor on my desk buy the laptop will be housed in a unit to the side. The cable-run will be about 3-4m. For USB, I guess I can use an active extension cable but not sure if this is possible for the display port.

Yes you are tied to using the cable that comes with it. The cable looks to be about 2.5-3ft long

Yes, however, Belkin and others make mini display port and USB extension cables, so your placement of the display and your computer need not be limited by the relatively short built-in cables.

Not very long at all... You pretty much need to have your laptop within 2-3 feet of the monitor. It's a bit aggravating.
