What's up guys, I've been searching for a DVI to VGA cable for my Macbook so I can use my TV as a screen and am having a hard time finding which I need. The ones I've found so far all say for Macbook then when I read the fine prints, it only mentions the older Ibooks/Powerbooks/Mac Mini's etc. The thing is the main connector that goes into the laptop all looks the same for the older and newer ones and that's where my confusion steps in

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

No one is going to be able to answer that question definitively without knowing which MacBook you have in order to determine which video port is on that MacBook. It definitely will not be DVI, as no MacBook has ever had a DVI port.

See the following thread - Post # 1 & 4.
