    Is this possible? Sometimes ( :( ) I have to use a Windows laptop and I would love to just connect it to the ACD. The laptop has HDMI and VGA ports. Is there some kind of female MDP to male HDMI connector that will work? Where can I find it?

    I believe the only way is through an expensive adapter ($150 or so)

    I don't mind paying. Can you give me the link to such an adaptor?

    Hi,

    OWC has one by Kandex and it only cost me 100 bucks.. it was on sale from 129.99 - I suggest going this route, as Atlona is the other one and is expensive at 150.00

    Thanks. I've found the Kanex adaptor on amazon. I would buy it from OWC, but I am in the UK so shipping and customs makes it more pricey.
