I do not think that is a correct model number. The Core Duo's don't go that high I believe so I am guessing it is a Core 2 Duo. Either way - these should work for you.

If it has a Mini DisplayPort connection you could use one of these:

For only $8.50 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter | Mini DisplayPort to HDMI / DVI / VGA Adapter

If it has a DVI connection you could use one of these:

For only $2.85 each when QTY 50+ purchased - HDMI DVI Cable 28AWG - 6ft w/Ferrite Cores (Gold Plated) | 28AWG HDMI-DVI Cables

For the video you need one of these in the length you desire:

Video Cable - <b>HDMI/DVI</b>

For the audio you need one of these:

For only $0.54 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 3.5mm Stereo Plug/2 RCA Plug cable - 6ft | 3.5mm/RCA Audio Cables

You need to look at page 11 of your owner's manual to see where they need to be hooked up on the TV.

(It's a mid '08 model - non-unibody)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
