    I'm trying to connect a 2.16 coreduo mbp to this BenQ external display (http://www.philmug.ph/forum/showthread.php?t=54859) and encountered this "problem":

    My mbp has a DVI port that looks like this:

    However, the DVI port of the LCD display looks like this:

    After some online reading, am I correct in saying that my mbp has a dual link DVI-I line out while the LCD display has a dual link DVI-D line in? What cable do I need in this case, and where may I get one? (Would CD-R king have it?)

    Thanks.
