    I would like to encourage anyone interested in connecting the MB via the mini-DisplayPort to the increasing number of new monitors with the standard DisplayPort input to request that Apple manufacture a mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter. Since Apple decided to miniaturize a standard port, it would be nice if they would help us out in connecting it to the standard port.

    Please follow this link and request the adapter.

    Thanks.

    This is a great idea, hopefully Apple does make this adapter soon to support the need to connect the new Macbooks and Macbook Air's to non-Mac products.

    In the meantime my company has decided to go ahead and create such an adapter while Apple catches up. I hope to have it available as soon as possible within the 10-15 dollar price range. If you want more info on availability or images, check out our blog: http://estore.circuitassembly.com/catalog/blog/?p=50

    "Please release a mini DisplayPort to standard DisplayPort adapter. Several companies are releasing monitors that have standard DisplayPort connections. While it may be attractive for Apple to try to get us to buy a Apple Display, our workplace controls those decisions. It is also a additional profitable business opportunity with minimal additional work/investment. Please consider."
