    Does anyone else have this setup? I loved my Cinema Display with my old Dual 2.0 G5, but I have to say with all the wires, this setup is a pain in the a**. Is there anyway to reduce the clutter?

    1 cable causes clutter?

    If you mean you're finding there's loads of clutter when using your MBP with the screen as compared to when you used your G5 then it depends on what you plug in! If you use an external keyboard and mouse and plug that into the MBP then you could save yourself a great deal of clutter by getting bluetooth versions of those. Then you're left with simply the monitor cable and the power cables for both the MBP and display.

    Is that any help?

    The switch to DVI from ADC was going backwards in technology. The reasons for them doing this were obvious and understandable, but I hate how the USB/FireWire/DVI connectors are somewhat separated. It just makes everything probably seem messier than it is. I've been using the MightyMouse so far and that had to be connected to the monitor's USB so the clutter is building up. I'll spring for a bluetooth mouse soon. This is the first time I've ever used a laptop as my main desktop so I guess that's the real reason why it feels so cluttered.
