    Hello,

    How do I connect my MacBook Pro Retina 15 inch to my Apple Cinema Display 30 inch? Which cable would give me the best quality? I don't know which cable I need.

    Kindly thanks for you input.

    You need a Mini DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI adapter, which costs 99 USD or so via the Apple Online Store.

    You could buy this then for 69 USD or look on eBay or Amazon for used articles.

    A normal MDP to DVI adapter will not work with the 30" though, as that adapter does not support that high a resolution, strangely.
