    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).

    Yes, they did. Past tense.

    Even their 2007-8 models had mini-DVI. Apple obviously doesn't like DVI due to it's thickness.

    The thread topic ("never") is also past tense. In my opinion, gr8tfly's post is perfectly valid.

    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.

    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.
