It's there to save space, even though there is enough space to go around - same with the stupid mini-VGA port on the iBooks. Lame.
Speaking of stupid mini-vga ports...the stupid mini-VGA port on the iBooks
I've seen a version of the cable at the Apple store,The Apple Store sells the cable convereter as a separate product for $20 or something like that.
Maybe I'm not understanding what you are trying to do but Lombards have a standard VGA port on them to drive an external monitor.Speaking of stupid mini-vga ports...
Where can I find a mini-vga to full sized vga adapter for my
Lombard Powerbook, I'd love to hook up an external
monitor to my Lombard
Sorry...I'm trying to get it to hook up to a Mac monitor,Lombards have a standard VGA port on them to drive an external monitor.
Where abouts are they and what are they called?If you did need one of those adapter, they are only about $10 - $15.
It'll work with the onboard video...Strange why it wouldn't work on your Beige.
