Apple's latest Mac omputers and LED Cinema Displays use a new type of video connector called Mini-DisplayPort. Unfortunately, the cable built-in to the Apple display is only about 3 feet long, which is too short for many applications.
The Mini-DisplayPort extension cable features a female end designed to connect to the Apple LED Cinema Display, and a male end designed to connect to any new MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Pro, iMac, or Mac Mini. These cables will also be compatible with new Apple hardware as long as Mini-DisplayPort is Apple's connector of choice.
Now you can connect a Mac Pro desktop or Mac Mini from under your desk to an LED Cinema Display on your desk, or extend your connection even further to a display in another location entirely. You can also use video mirroring on your MacBook or MacBook Pro to give a presentation on a distant 24-inch Apple LED Cinema Display.
You can also extend the USB connection on the latest Apple LED Cinema Display with our to provide iSight camera, microphone, speakers, and USB hub functionality.
