I'm thinking of getting macbook pro, since my pc monitor stop working; and I think it's about time that I make the which. only I have important files and programs on my pc which I can not because I have no monitor is there a way I can use VGA cord, or something similar? I don't really feel like getting a whole new monitor I would like to start of fresh with a new computer. sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Probably the easiest way would be to pull the PC's Hard Drive and stick it in an external enclosure like this one Vantec NexStar CX NST-300S2-BK 3.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure (Black): Electronics

    I'm assuming your PC uses SATA 3.5 drives; if not select an enclosure compatible with your drives.

    Your MacBook Pro will be able to read from the PC drive, but not write to it because the drive will almost certainly be formatted NTFS. When you finish transferring your files you can reformat the old PC drive to OS Extended Journalled and use it for backup or storage.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
