that's a DVI-I socket they're showing, not a DVI-D
It may be, but a DVI-I socket only differs from a DVD-D socket by having the extra pins (or holes) on either side of the blade (to supply the VGA connection). As a mini-DVi socket hasn't, it seems, the blade (and pins) that a DVI-I socket has, it can only convert to a DVI-D or VGA connector, and those are commercially available. The cost of both is about £28 (€35, at present), so €38 is not far out. But if you buy Apple stuff, your're not supposed to worry about the price, just wonder the beautiful design! (Or so I'm told.)
