Apple MacBook pro - Mini Displayport to Displayport?

    Hi

    I've just picked up a 13" macbook pro, and want to get it hooked up to my Dell 2408 which has a displayport, my thinking is a one piece cable would be better than using adaptors etc and keep my empty HDMI port spare if I need it (#1 goes to the i7)

    Anyone know where I can source a mini-displayport to displayport cable? I only need a couple of foot in length.

    Thanks

    Jen

    Jenny - did you mean display port, or DVI?

    All of Apple's adaptors are MDP to VGA or DVI etc. Not Display Port.

    Even googling around only throws up VGA / DVI / HDMI adaptors...

    Exactly! Why fit a "mini" displayport if you can't then plug said laptop into a full size displaport? I know apple have their tethered cables but come on......

    I found one here:

    http://estore.circuitassembly.com/products/Mini-Displayport-to-Displayport-Adapter-Cable.html

    For only $15 but as it's pretty much made to order I'd prefer a readymade solution.

    Can't believe there's no off the shelf!

    In America there is Monoprice, but they no longer ship to the Uk.

    Is it a new MBP or an old one?
