I recently purchased the latest mac mini (with an included HDMI to DVI-D connector). My monitor is VGA so I want to still utilize it. The problem is, Apple does not sell DVI-D to VGA adapter.
I'm looking at buying one on ebay. Is that the right adapter to use? Has anyone tried connecting the latest mac mini to a VGA monitor?

Why use DVI-D as an interface? Your machine already has an HDMI and Thunderbolt port, and Apple recommends using a VGA adapter on the Thunderbolt port for that. See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4806?viewlocale=en_GB .
