    well,yesterday I went to Apple store to bring home a miniDVI-VGA cable and a wireless keyboard.Well, when I got home, I tried to connected the cable to my new 32' LCD TV,but.............WHAT the heck???? Both of the ports is.........female.Unfortunately, ports can't be lesbian,so today I have to fly to Radio shack store to buy another Male-male cable extender(and I wonder why Apple made the cable so short????).After 5' to hook up everything, another 5' for MacBook to recognize the new monitor,what I can tell so far is...........AWESOME. I use Vizio(ok,if you have Sony or Sammy,you can laugh if you want),the color is great,although some of them is not displayed correctly.The light blue change a little bit to gray,but it's still ok. I don't know how good an Apple cinema display is,but with the huge price difference, I can tell that a LCD TV is a good choice(my TV is $400,while an ACD 30' is $1800).Or even with that much money,you can always go with Sony or Sammy stuffs.
    well,that;s it,thank you for looking at this rant,because I'm so happy right now :D

    the cable is short as it is a mini-dvi to vga CONVERTER.
    essentially converts your macbook mini-dvi 'socket', into a vga 'socket'
    some converters don't even have and cable at all, such as this dvi to vga converter

    Isn't the LCD TV at a lower resolution compared to a ACD?

    It isn't really a fair comparison...

    "unfortunately, ports can't be lesbian"

    Still, you thought Macs were sexy before, wait till they come out with the lesbian macs. :)

    yes,the resolution is not high as ACD,but with a TV,I can do many things,like playing with X360,Wii, or even PS3.So it's a fair trade off
