    I have a Macbook, and am looking into getting one of the older cinema displays (see pic) since the new one's cost too much.

    Firstly, is this possible?

    Secondly, what cables will I need to buy? The one I'm looking at on ebay says it "Comes with ADC which provides the USB and power to the screen."

    Don't really know what that means, so if someone could help me out, that'd be great.

    Finally, I use the built in web cam quite a lot. Will i still be able to use it, by using the mirror screen 'thing'? (as you can tell, i don't really know that much!)
