I hope someone can help me
What I want to know is quite simple
I have a mid 2009 13'' Unibody MacBook Pro
with the MacBook Pro I have a mini-display port to DVI adaptor, which was connected to my Samsung monitor via DVI and worked perfectly, this monitor has now gone elsewhere in my house.
I also have a 17'' Apple ADC Studio LCD Display connected into my Quicksilver G4 again working fine, but the G4 is sluggish, but I do really like its matching monitor.
I'm intending to buy the fairly expensive Apple DVI to ADC Adapter and I am hoping to connect it to my 13'' MacBook Pro, through the mini display port interface is this possible and will it work?
the only source of evidence I found was a while back showing a photo of a new style macbook air apparently connected to and driving one of the larger 23'' ADC displays via its display port and that was apparently working fine.
I've been told in theory this should work, because the ADC adaptor other than providing a power source for the monitor isn't doing anything else, since ADC is still a DVI signal, its just apples proprietary version of it
I hope someone can help
kinds regards & thanks a lot Ryan
