Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter
Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. 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 the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter to connect your Mac to a 30-inch display that includes a DVI connector, such as the 30-inch Apple Cinema Display HD, and enjoy the ultimate widescreen canvas with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels.
Mac OS X v.10.5.6 or later
Compatible with Mac computers with Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt ports

The new MacBook Pro now has video outputs (two mini-DisplayPort and one HDMI), so there is no proble The new MacBook Pro now has video outputs (two mini-DisplayPort and one HDMI), so there is no problem that you can have up to 3 monitor connected to the MacBook Pro. If you want to share two monitors with other systems or Mac, then you need to find Dual-Monitor/ Dual-Head KVM switch. I found ConnectPRO UDD-12A+ or UDD-14A+ KVM switches are both tested with MacBook Pro multi-monitor sharing.

The 30" Apple Cinema Display has four cables that come out the back 1) Dual-Link DVI, 2) USB 2, 3) F The 30" Apple Cinema Display has four cables that come out the back 1) Dual-Link DVI, 2) USB 2, 3) Firewire 400, and 4) power. I believe the adapter's USB port was put there to allow the adapter to supply power to the 30" ACD two USB ports. So although the adapter is suitable for any Dual-Link DVI monitor, Apple certainly wanted it to work with it's own monitor. Interestingly, the adapter does not have a socket for Firewire 400 so, the Firewire 400 cable from the monitor goes unused and thus the two Firewire 400 ports on the back of the monitor no longer function.
