    To benefit from this monitor's capabilities, while plugged in to your laptop, you'll need an active displaypory to dual link DVI adapter and a mini displayport to displayport cable.

    Yes, that's perfect, no need for a miniDP to DP adapter.

    I understand, but using anything else besides an active adapter will limit you to 60Hz and unless you want 120hz for 3D, i don't recommend this monitor.

    The one that vsg28 linked is perfect and a cleaner solution, you won't need anything else but be careful the one from your first link is not Dual link DVI, the second one is ok but you'll need a miniDP to DP cable too since the M18x has a miniDP.
