Thinking about buying a base model mini. Just tried a hand-me down monitor (19" wide screen Gateway, DVI port, 1440x900) connected to my MBP via a Mini Display port adapter (Apple) and got a very out-of sync screen that turns off quickly - goes black. Resolved by using another cable! The real question is will this monitor work with the Mini at that low resolution (the highest the monitor can do)? I don't need to connect it to MBP really, just wanted to test the DVI adapter. Any ideas?
