>From dmidecode on my Thinkpad x240:

Handle 0x0018, DMI type 8, 9 bytes
Port Connector Information
        Internal Reference Designator: Not Available
        Internal Connector Type: None
        External Reference Designator: Mini DisplayPort
        External Connector Type: Other
        Port Type: Video Port

I wonder if this could be one avenue to pull this information.
