Blocks 2 other ports on both sides of MiniDP.
on March 29, 2011
The cable blocks both nearby ports (fw800 and one USB)on my 17" brand new MacBook Pro 2011 model. I can squeeze the fw-800 cable in when Display Port adapter is plugged-in, but after while it become uncomfortably bended. So the cable with adapter is now sitting in my desk drawer, I was afraid to damage my ports on this expensive machine and went back to the Apple adapter. I don't like it either because its cable is too short and gets in the way of other cables when bulky DVI connector is connected. Please let me know if you found any similar 6 feet cable which connector fits better into cramped ports on unibody Macs. Other than that, cable works well with my Dell 19" external monitor monitor. I can't wait for thunderbolt devices with ability daisy chain and connect all my devices using just one cable and thunderbolt port.
