My MacBook is not next to the screen, but quite far away. How long is the cable? and is there a way to extend it?

    The Apple online store (US) sells a 2 meter combination mini DisplayPort/USB extension cable. It's called Dr. Bott mini DisplayPort Extension Pro (6.6 ft./2 m) and it sells for $39.95. This would provide an extension of 3 meters when combined with the 1 meter cable on the monitor and should handle most beside or under the desk MacPro arrangements. However, the Apple Store description says that you can daisy chain up to three of these cables which would provide an extension of 6 meters - 7 meters or 23ft. when combined with the cable that comes with the monitor.

  • There is no way to extend it but the cable is 1 meter long.
