    I just ordered a MacBook Pro, and I am selling my PowerMacG5 (its for sale in the marketplace!) I think I want to keep my 20" Cinema Display (2003 Model) but I don't know what kind of connector I need to get to do that. Or is there a spot on the MacBook Pro for me to just plug the displays cable into. Just need some help! Thanks!

    20" Apple displays use DVI, last I heard. DVI works on the MBPs.

    My model uses the dvi too? I know they switched at one point. My display is the latest of the transparent models. I seem to think it is ADC. Anyone know?

    If your display is plastic, like mine it is ADC. They were the ones that were around the 1.6Ghz era. The aluminium ones went to DVI. To double check, read the manual with your display.

    You will need a mini dvi to dvi adaptor (I think. If it needed one it would be included) and a dvi to ADC adaptor (buy from apple store).

    No, you just need the DVI to ADC adaptor, as only the 12" PowerBook uses mini-DVI.
