    I have one of the new macbook pros and I am looking to find a cheap Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter. Has anyone here purchased one on ebay? I know Apple sells them for $29. I am hoping to get one for less if possible. Thanks in advanced.

    which screen are you going to use it for? there is the mini display port to DVI and then the mini display port to dual link DVI.
    I know your asking for just DVI, but it would be a shame to get one and realize you cant power your screen at its native resolution

    Have you considered Monoprice?

    I've used their Mini Displayport-to-Displayport cables with my new MBP to a Dell 2408WFP, and it works great. [I'm not connected to them in any way other than as a satisfied customer.]

    They have Mini Displayport to DVI too, from $8.14 (3 ft) to $11.44 (15 ft)

    Thanks guys I will check these out. I am just powering a single 20 inch display. I don't think I need the dual link.

    I have a 19 inch dynex from bestbuy, does it have a DVI connection? to use the mini display port to DVI? so if I wanted to hook up my 2010 macbook pro to my TV, would my apple minidisplay port to DVI adpter work? or would I need a minidisplay port to HDMI adapter?
