    I've got a 23" Cinema display that I want to start using with my laptop that only has a VGA port on it. How can I hook it up? Is there an adapter that also has a second cable to power the display or will it draw the power off of the VGA port?

    Heelp.

    sounds like you have the ADC version which was powered through the port. google for ADC (apple display connector) adapters

    Know of anything that ISN'T $300?

    or something that will serve this purpose AND act as a KVM as well? The price tag would be easier to swallow if it would act as a KVM.
