Is there a way to connect this monitor to a good ol' reliable MacBook Pro with DVI out only? There are many MDP to DVI adapters but the other way?

    In order to use the 27” monitor, your computers graphics card must be dual-link DVI, and must also support 2560x1440 resolution. If this is the case, then you need to get the DP400 to convert the dual-link DVI signal to miniDisplayPort. If your computer is not able to meet one of those two requirements, then with or without the DP400, you will not be able to make maximum use out of the resolution available with the 27” monitor.

  • Get the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter for the monitor, and then use a DVI cable from that to your laptop.

  • The only way is adapters.
