    so i have a late 2009 13.3" macbook, and i want to use my tv as a monitor but i wasn't looking to have 3 adapters to make it possible so i was hoping to have the mini dvi to hdmi cable

    well newegg said this cable was what i wanted so i bought it for $20 and of course it isn't what i want at all.

    where can i find the cable i want?

    ...if you ordered the mini DVI adapter from newegg, they sent you want you ordered...

    FYI, that adapter works on whitebooks up to at least the 2.13 Ghz non-unibody version...

    You might want to try www.monoprice.com as that same adapter was ~$6 plus shipping and they may carry the mini display port adapter you need cheaper than other places.... good luck with your search...
