    Hello
    I was just looking at the apple cinema display on the apple website and noticed that their is only one cable that splits into three- Magsafe, Usb, mini dvi. While that reduces cables, I see a problem, the macbook air has the magsafe port on one side and the mini dvi port on the other. Is the splitter part of the cable long enough to wrap around the back of the air? Any experiences being shared would be appreciated. thanks

    It doesn't look pretty, but it works.

    It still is... The Air also has the MagSafe and Thunderbolt ports on opposide sides.

    I think this was a horrible oversight on their part. It makes it very difficult to find a position for the Air that doesn't make it feel like I'm stressing the cable.

    I agree. For something so expensive.... And iMO there should be more than 1 model, someone wanting to attach the TD to an iMac does not want a magsafe adapter...
