We have a surprising number of questions as to whether the new MacBook and HydraDock will drive the older 30-inch Dual Link DVI Apple Cinema Display. The answer is, "Yes, it will!" It drives the 2560x1600 resolution panel at 30Hz refresh, no problem.

We bought an Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI Adapter ($99 at the Apple Store), made some calls to find one of these vintage displays (our local SimplyMac store had one in the back...), tossed everything in the car, and went to run the test.

I had forgotten just how rich the colors were on these old Cinema Displays! If you have one, and a new 12-inch MacBook, you are really rocking!
