It's going to cost you a minimum $150 for a converter plus whatever adapter/cable. If you're not in the market for a new Mac, take it back and get a monitor that will work with your system.
If you want to keep it and go for the cabling required, you'll need to let us know specifically which Mac you have. There has never been a MacBook with DVI. That was limited to the MacBook Pro.
Unfortunately teking the cinema display back is not an option, I didn't buy it. on the CNET forum someone suggested using the ALTONA DP200. I looked everywhere and I can find any pictures of it in use. People have told me that all converters make your picture look pretty bad. Any one ever use one of these things? I also found someting on google news about a converter called the HD620 from the same company that goes from HDMI to the new apple plug. So right now I've got a Macbook (DVI) an AppleTV (HDMI) and this **** Apple display (mini displayport). what the ****
