    Monitor Adapter for MacBook Air
    Hello.

    I have a Sony Vaio Monitor I am trying to find an adapter for for my MacBook Air.

    Do you know what kind of port this is?

    Specs:
    Mac Mini 2010 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 320M
    If the Sony Vaio monitor is VGA then you need this

    If it is DVI then you need this

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    The cable in the photo is a DVI cable (DVI-D Single Link to be precise).

    With the new MB Air, you would need the 2nd adapter linked above.

    Greetings bobtomay.

    Thank you for your feedback. So...with the DVI-D Single link, can I still use the regular DVI adapter displayed in funkdabeat's post although there is that space in between the two sets of holes?

    Thanks,
    Nicole

    Yes, the female end of all DVI-D connectors will be like that so that either the single link or dual link cable will plug into it.

    (Although, the DVI-D dual link cable will only work in single link mode with that adapter.)
