Laptop with Miracast

Likes # 0

Hey guys I'm looking to buy a new laptop. I've decided on my basic specs an i5 with 6GB of RAM and a 15" screen. One thing I would like is to be able to use the new Miracast standard. Are there any laptops out there with this built in?

Could I upgrade one with out it in the future?

Reading the article on Wikipedia it seems like the only hardware requirement is to have a WIFI direct capable card. Is the rest just a case of finding the appropriate software app/driver. If so any recommendations for windows & Ubuntu?
