Do I have an "Mini DVI" or a "Mini Display" port?

I have a 2006-2007 2.0 core 2 duo Macbook (A1181) I'm trying to figure out if it has a "Mini DVI" or a "Mini Display" port on the side, I have seen both on various sites including Best Buy and the Apple store.

Is there even a difference? Will a "Mini Display Port to HDMI" adapter (such as this one work for me?

Is this a good question?
