The DB-15 to VGA applies to old Mac such as Power Macintosh G3 and older.
Newer Macs will have either an ADC (Power Macintosh G4) or a DVI connection
(Power Macintosh G5, PowerBook G4 etc.) for which Apple sells the adapters
unless you're using an older PowerBook or iBook with a mini-VGA port of
which Apple also supplies the appropriate leads. If you're buying a new
machine then Apple supplies the appropriate adapters for using a PC-style
VGA lead in the box.
