Can I connect my iMac 27" late 2009 to a 20" ADC cinema display?¬† Here's a diagram of the back of my model, fyi. The folks at my local Apple Store say it's possible, but will cost $100 to get the necessary peripherals. On top of that, the technology is so different, connecting ADC to DVI to Mini Display Port, and I'd be better off getting a 3rd party monitor. If this is indeed true, what kind/model of 3rd party monitor should I look for?
As the title says, I need a new monitor for my old G5 as the old monitor for it went bust. Apple does not make the old displays that came with the unit anymore and the only available monitor is the new LED ones ? but they all come with mini display ports
I'm asking myself if it's possible to connect two 27" iMacs with the "Mini-Display-Port to Mini-Display-Port" Cable. I wonna use oneof the iMacs as the primary computer and on the second one just the display to extend my screen.
With my 'old' Intel iMac using a Display Port adapter, my 24" LG Monitor would be detected correctly and worked first time.†With my new 2011 iMac 27 using a genuine Apple mini DisplayPort adapter plugged into the Thunderbolt port, this same monitor now shows up as a generic VGA monitor and the range of resolutions is severely reduced - basically it looks terrible.†I've tried disconnecting the cable, reconnecting, using the second Thunderbolt, changing resolutions, detecting displays, showing displays in the menu bar. All with no success.
I'm thinking of getting a 24" iMac, though I'm used to using 2 screens. I know the iMac can connect a second monitor, though I'd like to know if anybody has used the new 24" Cinema display as the second screen.
I've read some reports that the 24" Cinema display will not power on if the MagSafe power cord is not connected to a device.

I use MBP (late 2011). I find the hunderbolt port to be similar to the mini-display port of older mac. I wish to have another display, but not ready to spend $999 over a thunderbolt display from mac. So would like to know if a Mini-diaplay port converter from apple would help me connect a exernal display via the thunderbolt port?
I have the need to connect an external monitor and a firewire cable to my Macbook Air, but with only one Thunderbolt port I am trying to determine if this is possible.¬† Is there such an adapter that would take my single Thunderbolt port and 'split' it into two?
10.9.4 has failed to fix what was fine in 10.9.2 and broken starting with 10.9.3 -- a display (Dell U3011) connected to a Mac Mini mid-2011 via either a DisplayPort cable or dual-DVI adapter suffers from frequent loss of signal. The elsewhere-prescribed-juju of changing spaces, unplugging and replugging cables, ... works randomly and for short duration.¬†
HDMI connection works (producing non-native resolution on the U3011).¬†

I have a MacBook Pro late 2011 with Lion installed. The Performance is less than I expected if compare with my old Macbook with Snow Leopard installed. Connect to Apple's Thunderbolt Display Performance goes doen to very, very, very, very slow.For Example to load a JPG in Preview it takes more than 30 seconds until 1 min to load. Same to start iWork like Pages or Keynote.Sometimes Safari freeze, loading images or loading plugins like flash animations. Generally Lion works with low performance and I wish Snow Leopard back. But my Mybook Pro late 2011 is not compatible to install Snow Leopard on it.¬†
I'm looking for a 1 TB external hard drive to connect to a firewire 400 port to use to backup my iMac.¬† So far, the better drives, 7200 rpm, seem only to have usb 3 connectivity or are expensive.¬† Is there an adapter or cable to connect a usb 3 input device to a firewire 400 port?
I would like to shop a thunderbolt display to connect it with my mackbook, but i dont know how can i make to conect it because it must have compatibility with thunderbolt, there is a way to make it? a program? a device?
my boss just got a Mac 37in cinema display and insists on me trying to find a way to connect it to a vga, Apple has no converters and told me to check this site for some different way of getting it to work on an IBM computer.
I have an old "apple cinema hd display" ... how do I connect to my new mac book pro. The cord coming out of the display is one big cord that turns into 4 cords (1. power, 2. firewire, 3. usb, and 4. the monitor plug that has 2 sets of 9 prongs and 1 dash). I just got a refurbished macbook pro 2.3 GHz Intel core i7 built in Feb 2011.Any ideas how to connect..On another note ... with my wireless apple mouse, what was once swipe down meant scroll down on the screen ... now it's swipe down is scroll up ... is there a way to reverse that?¬†¬†
I already have a Apple Thunderbolt display hooked up to the Thunderbolt port of my MBP Retina. Can I hook up a Dual DVI-D display with 2650X1600 to my MBP in addition? To second Thunderbolt port with Apple DVI adapter or other?
