Alright I just went to my campus Apple store and picked up a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter to connect my MacBook to my 19" Gateway LCD monitor. The horrific sales dude at the Apple store basically told me it was pointless for me to buy this adapter because the quality is horrible. I know there are a million thread already on this subject but I need some quick advice... If I open this adapter they will not let me return the item.. I'm am not overly concerned with the quality issue but is it really that bad or was the Apple salesman just being negative? I bought it because I knew if I asked everyone here I can trust your opinion and make my decision. Thanks for the quick advice everyone.. I'm sitting here starring at this adapter deciding whether or not I should open it.
