    Hooking up my MacBook to a TV
    What would I need to do it? is there anything that would allow me to hook it up to a simple Composite video input television? How much would it cost?

    I'd just like to be able to watch my digital movies on my Television

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    What computer have you got?
    You can usually hook them up by using a MiniDisplay port to VGA/ DVI/ HDMI adapter then the corresponding lead to the tv, adapters can cost anything between $10 - $40 or 8 - 30, cables are usually pretty cheap.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a MacBook with the model id of 4,1. It's a 13", 2009 (I think)

    As for the tv, it's a small projection RCA. I don't have any real means of figuring out the model number.
