I'm flabbergasted! I wasn't aware of that technology. I'll try reading up on it after I get some sleep; maybe I'm just dreaming right now.
Would that kind of device work with my lowly MacBook running Snow Leopard 10.6.8?
(Don't laugh. I literally rescued it from the trash when my wife discarded it. It's my only Mac-Intel machine.)

The 27" LED monitor is either Mini display port (old model) or Thunderbolt (new model).
The resolution (optimal) requires dual link DVI to mini displayport adapter. This is accomplished by using the Atlona AT-DP400 DVI to Mini-Display Port Converter.
As far as I know, in all my research, this is the only adapter to work with the 27" LED Cinema Display.
VGA will not output the required digital signal to the digital only 27" LED Cinema Display.
I have read so many blogs that say it can be done.
I want to see these claims.
Please provide links.
Otherwise, we're going to have other people asking the impossible......
