WhataCable! now has the hard-to-find Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters in stock for the new Apple computers.

The new MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air each have a Mini DisplayPort that allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. However, the adapter has been hard to find, and is expensive if you purchase directly from Apple.

You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.

Use new WhataCable! Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to connect an advanced digital monitor, an HDTV, projectors, or other DVI displays. You'll need to review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor or TV to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

This is only compatible only with MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air with Mini DisplayPort.

The Mini-DisplayPort can support up to a 30-inch widescreen display and is designed to be fully compatible with DVI, but you'll need the adapter. The Mini DisplayPort is just 10 percent the size of a full DVI connector so it saves a lot of valuable space on the computer.

"DisplayPort is a digital display interface standard (approved May 2006, current version 1.1 approved on April 2, 2007) put forth by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). It defines a new license-free, royalty-free, digital audio/video interconnect, intended to be used primarily between a computer and its display monitor, or a computer and a home-theater system."DisplayPort has an advantage over HDMI because there aren't those royalties which will make it easier and less expensive to implement (For example, the HDMI royalty is 4 cents per device). DisplayPort’s largest supporters are HP and Dell which have already released computers and monitors that support Display Port and HDMI.

Orders ship the same day and they have low prices.

Until Next Time
