    I just purchased my Mini at Best Buy and I am having an issue with a snowy screen. It looks as if I am getting some sort of interference or something???
    The screen is not all too crisp or clear...


    Any ideas is this something normal?

    THANX

    a few suggestions first

    1) clean your glasses :p

    2) make sure the mini-dvi cables/adapter are connected securely

    3) does this monitor have problems connected to other things besides the mini like your old computer or laptop

    this could be a case of crappy apple adapter, its not unheard of as i hear some folks are having trouble with the led cinema display blinking out and having graphical errors thanks to a crappy cord or adapter

    That's my bet. The minport works fine but I hate the Mini-DVI port. Same as with last macbook it falls out too easy.
