    If I get one of the new mac minis. which display adaptor do I need to be able to plug my existing (7 year old) Dell monitor in the mini?
    The current monitor cable has one of the serial-type connectors on it.

    I think you want a mini displayport to VGA adapter.

    no mini display port?

    I don't think the new minis have the new mini display port do they?

    They have a thunderbolt port, but it's backwards compatible with older miniDP display adapters :)
