Hello all,

I am a PC user who had started out with an iPhone, then went on to get an iPad, now I am on to the harder stuff...a Mac Mini to see how well I like it. So far I have really enjoyed my phone and tablet, but today, the very day I bought my Mac Mini, either the adapter to the VGA is faulty or the port on the Mini is the issue. Has anyone else experienced this? I am a little worried now as it is brand new and I tried two different monitors...should I just make an appointment to have someone take a look? It is pretty frustrating to have just bought this and there is an issue.

Basically it seems like if the cable is moved around some the monitor will lose the signal, so that is why I assume it is either the adapter or the port.

Thanks,
Twice

Nah, it was from the Apple store directly, I hope that is the issue I made an appointment with the store for tomorrow morning, so hopefully they can shed some light on the problem.

Bring it back and tell them to give you another one. Perhaps it is defective.

Well, as it turns out it was the adapter, I took the Mini and the adapter in just in case. Now that the issue is resolved, time to start learning Objective C.
