My wife has a current Lenovo laptop from work.

 

 

 

She's stuck working from home until her new office post-quake is ready in February. She has her laptop but wants to use one of my old Apple Cinema Displays as a monitor for it.

 

The laptop has no HDMI out so I can't connect it to a TV as an alternative, and it has no DVI socket which is what the ACD has as a connection.

 

Is there an adapter that would connect the DVI plug to the laptop?

What does the Laptop have?

 

Display Port? Mini Display Port? VGA? Mini-HDMI?

 

Or, get a DisplayLink USB dongle with HDMI out (I have a Dell one, works great).

Perhaps posting the Lenovo laptop model number may be useful...

You need a mini DP to whatever you want to connect to (HDMI/DVI)
