I have a 13" Macbook Pro (mid-2010) and I want to connect it to a Dell Ultrasharp 1708FP monitor. I thought I bought the right cables, but I was completely off.
The ports on the monitor look like this:

And I probably don't need to include this here, but in case there was any confusion over which model of Macbook Pro I have, the ports on my computer look like this:
Can anyone help me with which cables I need to get? Also, if anyone knows of any additional setup I need, that would be great too!

To identify your own ports, see post # 4 - here
But that would be VGA and DVI on your Dell and should be (that pic is not clear enough) a mini displayport (mdp) on your Mac.
You should be using a mdp to DVI connection.
Check monoprice.com or amazon for good pricing.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
