    Does the Macbook pro have an ethernet port for internet usage?
    I have a Macbook pro 15", 2.53GHz and 4gb ram. I'm living in University Halls and says i need a rj45 cable (15M RJ45 Ethernet Network Cable - Grey: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo)

    Can i use this sort of cable on my macbook pro?

    Yes you can
    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    is it true that newer ethernet devices have crossover switching built into the ports? So you no longer need specific patch and crossover cables?

    If you have the Macbook Pro, just look on it. The ethernet port is on one of the sides.

    As for automatic crossover switching, it should not be assumed.

    Crossover is PC stuff - the Mac senses which cable config is connected and just works
