    Hey all- Does the new 27” CD ship with a cable that will enable me to get the full 2560x1440 resolution out of the box? Or, do I need to buy an addl cable? I’ll be connecting it to a late 2009 model mini. Want to confirm before I order this thing- and have it arrive w/o everything I need.....

    Thanks

    Of course they ship with all cables you need. In fact, the cable is directly attached to the display, with no possibility to remove it.

    Great thanks. I knew/assumed/hoped it came with a cable- just wasn't sure it would support the higher resolution. I recalled reading something a some point that indicated that you needed to bridge two ports or something to go over 1080- been a while though.

    That was the case with DVI and 30" displays, meaning you needed a Dual Link DVI cable/adapter.
