M15x + OptX

I'm a bit puzzled by the cables with the OptX, which I'm considering. Do I need to get an adaptor over and above the stuff the OptX comes with for it to connect to my M15x?

Re: M15x + OptX

Thanks for confirming this Chris. I just couldn't believe that Alienware would release two pieces of current hardware that don't talk to each other out of the box! Time to put the disbelief aside.

Have you any experience with this setup? i.e. what would you suggest I get for a converter - should I try the display port or VGA?
