    Hi, Just joined the forums so apologies in advance if this is in the wrong section. Now onto my question I currently own the latest MBP, and have decided to buy an apple cinema display of EBAY. This model: 20 inch

    My question is will the cables it comes with suffice to my needs or will i need to buy a different cable, if so what?

    Cheers Dave.

    You will just need a miniDisplayPort to DVI adapter, and you should be good with the rest.

    I believe you will need different cables. Apple Cinema Displays 2004 or earlier use DVI cables. Current MacBook Pro's use a Mini DisplayPort to output video. You will need a Mini DisplayPort to DVI cable to connect it to that specific monitor.
