I think the question is this - will the MacBook have issues with HDCP. I am thinking both would work, but I am not sure.

If you're getting a standard monitor, then you just need that mini DVI to DVI adapter. The DVI cable that comes with the monitor will work just fine.

Also, DVI-D is referring to the regular DVI connector on the monitor. So yea, you'll still need the adapter to connect to it.

Well the monitor is listed as DVI-D input and I know there difference between DVI and DVI-D is the 4 pins on the back that carry the analog signal, Am i to assume it will connect just fine?


I dont actually have the monitor with me, Its at my parents house and i have to go get it. xD i need to see the thing.

I'm running my macbook in clamshell mode with my new Acer 23" widescreen monitor and the mini dvi to dvi cable I got from the apple store fits perfectly fine with the dvi-d input on the back of the monitor. They will fit with each other just fine.
