    Beware of what you're buying, people. This cable is specifically for the computers that are listed in the review, and is intended Beware of what you're buying, people. This cable is specifically for the computers that are listed in the review, and is intended to take you from Apple's proprietry mini-DVI connector (such as the one featured on the 12" Powerbook G4) to normal VGA.
    This is not, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, simply a VGA extension cord. You plug this into your computer, then the long cable that comes out of your monitor plugs into this.
    Apple need to make extra cable-buying easier in the Apple Store, especially as each of their computers need different cables...

    First I ordered 'VGA Display Adapter' by mistake...

    A lot of these cables look the same in the small picture and sound the same in the description. Check your requirements thoroughly before purchase. (ie - connections for both ends)
    I needed to connect a VGA TFT to my iMac, and placed my order for 'VGA Display Adapter'. Which shows on order form as 'APPLE VGA DISPLAY ADAPTER-GEN'. I later found that I needed compatibility for an 'iMac (Intel Core Duo)', returned 'VGA Display Adapter' and ordered 'Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter'. Which shows on order form as 'VID ADPT MINI-DVI TO VGA ADAPTER-GEN'.

    My new cable works like MAGIC, as I'm sure 'VGA Display Adapter' will for those who need it.
    Customer - Check every detail
    Apple - Make the difference MORE OBVIOUS

Its plugged into my Sony HD tv, a specific PC input, and when playing HD content on my mac, trailers, etc, it looks superb. Its just a shame i cant play multi region discs on my mac, VLC doesnt seem to work too well with Leopard, as im sure it might help make the DVDs look a little better than my old, S Video output, Dvd player. Anyway, a great adapter. Macx

    Other reviews saying this cable doesn't work with Intel Core 2 Duo iMacs are incorrect. It certainly does fit if your Mac has a Mi Other reviews saying this cable doesn't work with Intel Core 2 Duo iMacs are incorrect. It certainly does fit if your Mac has a Mini-DVI port - check the documentation. However you may still experience problems. As reported in other Forums, you may find that your iMac detects the external monitor but you have problems getting a signal. After reconnecting the VGA end I did get a signal for a minute or two then lost it again. However I don't believe it's a problem with the adapter.

Each description on the suppliers site said mini DV to VGA but there are at least three different types. Please Apple somethings you do make me wonder where the genius goes sometimes. get someone in to get your supply chain sorted.

  • WARNING - Does not fit iMac Core 2 Duo

    Like another reviewer mentioned, Apple do need to make buying cables for older products more accurate. This item states 'designed Like another reviewer mentioned, Apple do need to make buying cables for older products more accurate. This item states 'designed for the iMac (Intel Core Duo)' so I bought it.

    I have an Intel Core 2 Duo late 2009 iMac and didn't spot that the wording was 'Core Duo' and not Core 2 Duo'. It doesn't fit.

    It is ridiculous that you have to click on each cable to see what it fits - this cable is the only one I could see that mentioned Core and Duo which is why I bought it. Now have to put it on eBay...
