    i'm looking at the new mini as it's suitable for my needs, but was told in the apple store my 23” apple HD display
    (the older all aluminum one - not the new one with the black boarder) could not be connected because
    apple doesn't make these adapters anymore?

    The guy at the store did find me a used 'Apple DVI to ADC Apdater Display Power Cable A1006' on eBay
    but it’s got a honkin big power supply bar and I was told I’d then have to buy another adapter to connect to it
    if I wanted to connect it to the new mini

    I find it hard to believe that a perfectly good monitor can't easily be connected to the new mini???

    i want less cables not more

    any thoughts, advice?

    Totally wrong, the aluminum 23" display uses DVI. The Apple employee is thinking of the older acrylic display which uses ADC.

    The mini comes with a HDMI to DVI adapter in the box, or you can purchase a Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter (Apple part # MB570Z/A).
