    The new MacBook Pro 13 inch uses a "mini DisplayPort" which is different from the white MacBook "mini-DVI Port" and requires a different cable. (I have one of each, and I am about to order a new cable for the MacBook Pro, cos the old mini-DVI to VGA cable does not fit the MacBook Pro. Bummer!)

  • The mini display port on all macs is the same. I use the adapter with many LCD projectors to give Keynotes and I use it at home with my 21" Samsung flat screen. It is a great adapter but, make sure you put the computer to sleep before you connect and disconnect the adapter or the computer won't know what screen to use!

  • Thx for the answers, I bought a "mini-display port to hdmi" cable and it looks the same but is too small for my MacBook 2.4's port. I will find a "mini-DVI port" alternative.
