    I ordered a MacBook Pro and a Cinema Display yesterday, and on the order form there were several connectors listed.

    I couldn't understand them, and none referred directly to the Cinema Display. I figured that surely it would come with a connector...

    Anyway, I tried to call Apple and waited 20 minutes without getting through, and then tried email. Got a fast response saying it would take SEVEN days to respond.

    Does anyone know whether the Cinema Display comes with a connector, or is that another purchase? If so, WHAT do I buy?

    Many thanks. :)

    If you are getting the 24" LED Cinema display, no, you don't need a connector as your MBP will have mini DP native.

    If you have the 30" cinema display then you will need one of these $99 dual link DVI adapters. It won't come in the box.


    Heh.

    Sorry.

    Excellent -- thank you. :)

    Yes, I'm getting the 24 inch, so I'll be good to go.

    That stops me worrying, you've set my mind at rest.

    The 24" Cinema Display is a great companion to the MBP. Enjoy it -- it is a spectacular display.
