    I'm Looking at getting a new Mac Mini

    It's says it supports mini display port and mini dvi, so ideally i could connect two displays to the unit. I wanna get another Apple LED display as i currently have one for my MacBook pro.

    Is there anyway i can connect two LED ACDs to a mac mini. I can't seem to find a adaptor that will let me connect mini display port from ACD to mini dvi port on back of the Mac Mini.

    It's because the ACD requires use of both the mini display and mini dvi, if you go with 3rd party monitors (dell, acer, viewsonic, samsung) you can use 2 1080p monitors. The ACD has a pretty high screen resolution, so that might be your bottleneck

    I'm running dual Dell 1905's with my mac mini, there're a nice S-IPS paneled 19" LCD. I like the screen height of the 19's, same as the Dell 24" I feel I get a better screen view while looking at web pages and documents then the smaller widescreen 20's.... the screens are too short (height). Perhaps, get a couple of the dell 2209WA's and turn them vertically ( long way up & down) this might be a hot set up.:rolleyes:

    Wait, what? The 24" LED Cinema Display uses only mini displayport, not both. In fact, that was quite a bone of contention when the display was first released, because it would work ONLY with the new unibody line and not previous products that used regular or mini DVI.
