My #@%(! dishwashing machine is about to die, and I'm trying to pick a new one. I have a question about dishwashers and garbage disposals.

The current dishwasher is hooked up to the kitchen sink's garbage disposal, and I presume its replacement will be, too.
My understanding is that some dishwashers have built-in disposals, and that the ones without the build-in disposals have filters that need to be cleaned periodically. I don't want to clean any filters, but dishwashers with built-in disposals seem to be noisier and more expensive.
Since any replacement dishwasher I get will be hooked up to the in-sink disposal, does this mean I don't have to worry about cleaning filters and I can pick a model without a built-in disposal?
