    Hey, is this 24" LED Display only for MacBook's? the new one on the Apple site, with iSight Cam / Mic etc..???

    I'm just curious could I connect it to my Mac Pro, would the cables be long enough, or is it ONLY for MB/MBP?

    Kind Regards

    Do I have one of those? where would it be :D?

    I do know I have a thing sitting on the floor, square, that my 23" screen is connected to, is that what it is?

    Kind Regards

    Ah, what is it then, I searched on the apple site, nothing I saw was what I was looking for.

    I found a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adaptor, lol

    Kind Regards

    There could be any number of square things on your floor. Care to be more specific?

    As far as I know, the only two Mac Pro video cards with Mini DisplayPorts are the GT 120 and HD 4870.

    lol, good point ^_^, when I bought my 23" acd, it came with it, it has one cable from the 23" plugged into it, and then a power cord from the little square thing to the power point, it's white. Getting any better lol :D

    Kind Regards

    You mean this square thing?

    Regardless, the Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter only allows you to connect a DVI display to a computer with a Mini DisplayPort, not the other way around.

    Yes I'm pretty sure that is it, is that the right one for the 24" new display?

    Kind Regards

    As I mentioned, your computer doesn't support the display, and no adapter can change that.
