    Hi guys!

    Before I buy my first Macbook Pro Unibody, I want to know if I can get analog output from the DVI adaptor ?

    On the old early 2008 Macbook Pro, you could just plug in a DB15 VGA adaptor into the DVI port.

    Can I use the same adaptor with the DVI adaptor to get analog out??

    Talking about DVI - is the 17" and big 15" models the only only models that can drive at display with resolution higher than 1920x1200????

    Nope, not possible. The new DVI adapter does not have the 4 pins for analog.

    It sucks, but there's not a whole lot you can do about it at this point. I too need another adapter, but have been holding off...
