While I love my MacBook, I'd love to also set up my old Dell flatscreen and run a dual-monitor setup (not mirroring). The Dell monitor (1704FPT - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/1704fpt/EN/about.htm#Bottom View ) that I want to use has a DVI port on the back of it. I bought a mini-DVI to DVI adaptor, thinking I could just use that, but then I realized that the end of the adapter and the port on the monitor were the same. Each had holes, neither had pins. Is that normal? Was I supposed to just buy a cable that had pins on each end? Or am I forced to use a VGA adapter? I was hoping to use a DVI because I heard it's a MUCH sharper image. Thanks for your help.
