    Ok.. so i am REALLY new to all this monitor stuff. I have always had "package deals" where I never really needed to worry about the connections on my monitors working.. or i've had imacs.

    Anyways.. i have a MBP that I would LIKE to have hooked up to an older Apple Studio Monitor.

    Now, I know that the MBP video card does NOT supply power to the monitor, and that this monitor NEEDS power to come from that cable (the monitor does not have a separate power plug)

    So i know i need some type of converter that will send power to my monitor.. WHAT IS THIS CABLE??

    I have read about the AT-DP200 but the more i read, the more confused I get.. At first i thought it was right.. but then im starting to think this does the opposite.. that its for older computers and newer monitors. or is THIS what i need???

    I DONT KNOW!! Please point me in the right direction.. I just need to know what will work.. I REALLY want to get this set up..

    thanks

    The Amazon link is the correct one, you need DVI to ADC adapter. It works fine (I used it a long time ago with a powerbook connected to a studio display), but I believe they are hard to come by now.
