    I've got a late-2007 MacBook (plastic, white, and beautiful). I'm looking into getting one of the new 24" Displays for desk work, but I'm just wondering - I know it's got a Mini DisplayPort connector, but my MacBook has a Mini DVI port. Is there a "convertor" that you can get on the Apple store, or is there one coming out? I couldn't see any...

    Thanks!

    Its not possible yet. Apple doesn't make the adapters yet, if they ever will.

    Is it possible that a 3rd party makes them? I seem to remember there was something about the Mini DisplayPort being made "open-source" (don't think they were quite the words, but free for anyone)...

    Yeah Apple is giving lincensing out for free for the mini display port, but no company has yet made the adapter, as far as I know. I would buy a 24" LED if I could get the adapter, because my wife has a plastic book and I have a Alu book.
