Can someone just double check that I'm buying the right Mini Display Port adaptor?

    I think this is correct - I just want to double check. I bought a DVI input monitor on offer last night (web exclusive offer only on last night) so I need an adaptor to connect to my Macbook Pro Late 2011

    Is that the right thing i need? I think it is - but Still learning all the apple/macbook pro stuff (first mac computer) so just wanted someone to quickly double check it for me ;)

    Thanks

    You still require the use of a DVI cable. The adapter solely changes the Mini DisplayPort to a DVI port.

    I thought that - the monitor comes with a DVI cable I think so I should be ok.

    Thanks guys - just wanted to double check :):eek:
