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.

mini-display port to dvi cables

mini dvi to dvi - think you're stuck using adapter and cable

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

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.
