Smile MacBook Air w/ Apple LED Cinema Display

I recently purchased the new (and beautiful) 24" Apple LED Cinema Display monitor and was very excited to hook it up to my Air. Unfortunately, I have a "collector's version" Air with the Micro-DVI input - not the Mini Displayport needed to properly connect the two devices.

Does anyone know where to find the proper adapter?

I have the Micro-DVI to VGA adapter, but I would also need a male VGA to female mini displayport to complete the connection. I'm very confused and beginning to get frustrated. I've looked everywhere. Any assistance would be tremendously appreciated.

-Frank

That's the only way you're going to be able to do it as of now. At $179, it's probably cheaper to return the ACD if you're within your return period, and take the restocking fee if there is any. Then just go get a 24" dell with DVI/VGA/etc. inputs for a few hundred bucks.

What's with this "collectors version"? Is that an ironic euphemism? You have a rev. A, just say so.

Whatever I'd say your best bet is to trade up to a rev.B or C MBA and enjoy the gorgeousness of your ACD.

I bought my Air last June (my first Mac). I love it minus this connectivety issue. Speaking of trading up, what's the best way to do so? And, what do you recommend trading up to?

"collector's version" was in reference to the small window Apple produced Airs with the micro DVI.

Try selling it on Craigslist. You might be able to get 700-800 for it and maybe more if it has Applecare. I know it's not much, but it'll get you about half of a Rev C refurbished with the SSD.
