    I am looking for an external monitor and came upon the dell s2209w monitor. It comes with 2 cords needed for setup but i am wondering if i will need any additional cords and if anyone had experience with this monitor. Thank You.

    You'll need a converter to convert the MacBook's MiniDisplayPort to whatever type of connection you're going to use for the Dell (DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort...I dunno what it comes with).

    www.monoprice.com is a good place to get adapters if you don't wanna pay Apple's prices.

    I just bought that monitor about a month ago. I love it!
    (if you have the mini display -> dvi connector you can plug this monitor in and start using it right away. No setup needed)

    i think im going to go with the dell p2310h monitor. I am probably going to set up my xbox 360 to this monitor so would i need the xbox 360 AVG cord to plug it into the monitor? Also would i still need the minidisplay port to dvi or whatever it has?

    and does anyone know if either of these monitors have both an AVG and a DVI plug so i could plug the macbook and xbox 360 at the same time?
