    Apple Mini DVI to DVI Adapter - alternatives?
    Hi,

    I'm thinking about purchasing an Apple Mini DVI to DVI Adapter so that I can use an Acer TFT monitor I might be getting soon for my Macbook (mid-2007 spec.).

    Apple of course sells them here: http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObje...CAF&nplm=M9321

    Relatively cheap, it's made by Apple etc. so I would buy it straight away. BUT - I am terrified it will be too short. It is tiny! The monitor I want is one of the kind that rotates, thus raising the DVI socket farther off the desk.

    Are there alternatives or is this an 'Apple only' product? And if there are alternatives, what are they called and where to look for them (UK)?

    Thank you very much!

    Isn't the adapter so you can then take the monitor cable supplied by your Acer monitor and plug it into that? The adapter itself doesn't go into your monitor...

    Oh! I see! Now I get it...
    I take the DVI cable from the monitor and plug it into that. As you can probably see, I'm not knowledgeable about these sorts of things...

    Thank you so much!
