they also feature a lot of different type of display cables that apple doesn't carry

These guys do seem to have a nice selection of mini-display port adapters & cables...but for a website that sells "connectivity" products...they're selection overall is rather limited (unless I'm missing a BIG part of the website).

I've been shopping the best price on an HDMI to DVI cable (full sized DVI)...and I couldn't find one at this website. But of course many other websites have this cable...so no biggie!
