Because none of Apple computers have a DVI port.

They did. Both my 2006 17" C2D and the PowerMac Book 17" (one before last model) did. AFAIK, I ran a DVI-HDMI cable directly from the 2006 to my 50" plasma. Still using same cable with my Early 2009 17" MBP, though through a DVI <> mini-display port (Apple).

Because DVI-HDMI adapters are trivial, cheap, and plentiful. No need for Apple to make one.

Actually, using an adapter is ugly, when you can just buy a DVI-HDMI cable.

Oh wow. Sorry if I offended people, but when I said that 'Apple doesn't make computers with a DVI port" I was talking about right now. I know it sounds like I was talking about their very old pre-2007 models. Apple hasn't had DVI in their notebook lineup in a long time.

No need to be to that aggressive.

or do u know what macbook pro is? no you dont !

Yes I do know. I own one.

And I am definitely not some "13 year old kid". Not sure even why that matters or why you seem to so angry.

I just worked on a 2006 pro that had a DVI port. Aside from the old track pad and slow speed, the design was damn awesome, and the computer still worked like a dream. I was a little jealous of the owner at the time.
