17" Apple CRT w/ADC - can it work with the mac mini?

I've read that it won't work even with a adc to dvi converter because the crt is not digital. Anyone know any workaround?? I want a mini...I have the monitor and keyboard...but if the monitor won't work I can't afford it

NO

That monitor does not work with DVI-to-ADC adapters, and the Mini only has DVI.

If you can spare $30 you can get a used 17" CRT with VGA input. As Sun Baked said, the ADC CRT Studio Display won't work with any DVI-ADC adapter, whether it's Apple's, Dr. Bott's or Gefen's.
