  1. Hi everyone,

    My friend just gave me a Dell SP2008WFP Flat Panel Monitor, and I would like to use it as an extended monitor for my Macbook Pro. What cord would I need to buy from Apple to use the monitor, along with my Macbook monitor?

    I was looking on the Apple website, and I'm confused if its the:

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter
    Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter
    Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter

    or am I in the wrong ballpark and its something completely different?

    Thanks for any help provided

    PS. I also have all the cables that came with the monitor (White DVI cable/Blue DVI Cable, USB Cable and Power Cable)
