    Hello,

    This is but loosely related to my Mac Pro, but I have trouble getting definite answers in other parts of this forum.

    I have a 24inch LED Cinema display with my Mac Pro and I love it. Only problem: its mini displayport connector doesn't speak with my MacBook's mini-DVI plug.

    Can I use simple connectors / adapters to make the connection? Like this:

    MacBook (with Mini-DVI connector)
    +
    Mini-DVI male to DVI female
    +
    DVI male to Mini Displayport male
    +
    mini Displayport coupler (female to female)
    +
    Apple LED Display (with mini Displayport connector)


    Or am I forced to shell out 150$ on a full fledged converter?

    Thanks

    Loa
