    It should be arriving on Thursday or Friday.

    Not sure if I should have posted this in the display thread, but here goes.

    I had a 20" imac (sold it to a friend) hooked up via the mini-dvi to my 20" dell monitor, which was great.

    The new macbook pro's have the mini display port, I have read a bunch of reviews on apples site of people saying the display port -> dvi or vga adapter is ass and does not work. Only carries a digital signal and not analog or something, should I be worried. I asked the dummy I mean genius at the apple store and he was like 'yeah you just need an adapter', so he was of no use.

    I would hate to have to buy a new monitor just to get it to work.

    What was exactly the answer you were expecting? Just out of curiosity... You'd rather hear "buy the new cinema display so you're sure it works and you even save the cost of the adapter" ?

    It would have been nice to hear them say the dvi was going to work fine or maybe it wasn't and go with the vga, instead I got a 'it should work'.
