You should be able to use your Apple gear as long as it helps you remain productive and meets your needs, upgrading only as necessary. I have a 4 year old Mac Pro in my office, which had a 20 monitor. It’s a bit confusing to figure out what is required to connect a MackBook Pro without a mini-DVI port to the new display but this does the trick. Using the iMac as a display is finally an option with these converters, and while somewhat expensive, they are not out of reach for the average consumer. However you should take into consideration that if you don’t have an appropriate graphics card the resolution will be considerably less with an overall awful image quality.

What more can I say. Users can use the connected monitor as their main display or extend their desktop using it as an additional screen. Plug and play, no problem.

Welcome Image and Text. No Longer Available Update Location close. A minor gripe would be the fact that the Gefen device only accepts one input resolution and only outputs one resolution x at 60 Hz.
Even though it is unable to pass through very high resolutions, the Xbox or PS3 will only be able to view p because iMac 27″ doesn’t accept i or p. Will Apple release its own solution? When pluged in, lines appeared and spots green and purple.

I received this item which is the only one on the market to plug a cinema display 24 to a old version of Mac mini.
I found to my dismay–and confirmed with the manufacturer–that this device is not designed to work with a dual link DVI-I output, but only with a dual link DVI-D output.
