    Yes, the New Mac Mini Can Definitely Run upto 1920x1200, and may even be able to run a 30" Display.

    Because that's the price Apple charges. They don't need a justification.

    oh apple, I can tell this relationship is going to be a love/hate thing. Apple actually reminds me of a crazy girlfriend I had in high school that I never really liked, but somehow couldn't get enough of.

    Actually the Mini-DVI to DVI cable only supports a digital connection, so getting a DVI to VGA adapter for use with the Mini-DVI to DVI cable would not work. You'd be better off getting a Mini Displayport to VGA adapter (or Mini-DVI to VGA but Mini Displayport is newer).

    It's not just a cable like the miniDP->DVI adapter, it is and active converter.
