    Your display has a 1920x1280 native resolution making it unnecessary to buy this adapter as it is designed for resolutions of 2560x1600. All you need is the standard mini-displayport to DVI adapter and a DVI cable. But don't be fooled, you will still get HD video from that little adapter.

  • Buy the mini-display port to DVI adapter from Apple. (bestbuy carries them) then get a DVI cable to connect the 2.
