I mentioned that I got my new Mac Mini to replace my antique G4, but what I failed to mention was that I still had an older Cinema Display that’s still gorgeous (if not wide screen aspect) but it uses the older, proprietary ADC connection – which not only supplied power to the monitor, but also USB and allowed the monitor to act as the on/off switch for the computer.
Mac Mini uses a DVI connector, so I had to buy and ADV to DVI connector, seen at the top of this picture here. Note that it is almost as big as the Mac Mini. It weighs more, too.
Now, if I could just find a way to connect the cool Apple Speakers that came with the G4 but also have a proprietary connector that Apple doesn’t support anymore… 🙁
