    You will need to purchase a mini-dvi to VGA or DVI cable from the Apple store. I managed to get them to throw in a Mini-DVI to VGA when I purchased my MacBook. Only problem is that you need to connect sound to an Amp or get a 3.5mm headphone jack to phono cable and plug it into the TV.

    You need a mini dvi to dvi or mini dvi to vga depending on your monitor. You also need a cable to get the sound to the tv from the macbook (from headphone output specifically.
