The X61 series has and supports only analog VGA ports (including the UltraBase etc.), thus you would need a VGA to DVI adapter in order to connect the X61 to a monitor which only has DVI and no VGA ports.

Nope, as I told before with the help of a good VGA-to DVI adapter/converter both devices shoud work together. Do a search on the net related to this VGA to DVI and cinema display theme and you will find a lot of solutions, here is just one example...
