I will be considering a new MacPro whenever they come out. I currently use an Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI) with my MacPro. Off the top, I think this model is from 2007-2008. I was told that LED monitors last "forever", so I am hoping to keep this display as my monitor. I love it. Apple sold me a Mini Display Port to DVI adapter. The port is for Thunderbird and could be used currently with my new MacBookPro. But I don't get it.The display connections are:1.DVI port. 2.USB 3.FW. The Mini Display Port only has a Thunderbird connection and what looks to be a connection for the DVI port. So, what happens with the USB and FW connections?And what does this mean??? Do I have the wrong adapter??When you connect an Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI) to one of the products noted below, you may find that the highest available resolution is 1280 x 800, even though the optimum resolution for the display is 2560 x 1600. The maximum resolution available when this display is connected to a single-link DVI port is 1280 x 800; you must connect the display to a dual-link DVI port to access the higher resolutions available to the display.http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3571#Should they have sold me this?
