Have to admit that after waiting 3 weeks for my new mini to turn up (I live on a tiny island in the pacific) that I was pissed when I saw how short the monitor cable is. Now I have to hope that the store has an adapter for it so that I can finally use the mini. If not, I'll have to wait another week or so to get one delivered in the mail. Very disappointed, but I am sure that once I manage to get the right cable that I will love the thing. My monitor is an LG 26' 1080P Should have checked the apple site beforehand to see what was in the box. my fault.
