    mini-dvi to dvi CABLE source? (not adapter)
    I was wondering if there are any mini-dvi (or mini-displayport) to DVI CABLES (i.e. > 24" long) out there. I have the Apple adapter, but it's kind of stupid to have to use and adapter + a cable (DVI to DVI) to connect my mac-mini(s) to a monitor.

    I did some research but couldn't find anything.

    Ok, I could use that. Well, I assume that the Mac Mini doesn't care if I connect my monitor on the DVI or displayport. Any difference performance / other wise?

    Yep, don't think the mini has any feelings about it one way or the other.

    You will not notice any difference between them.
