There are a few posts about this, but I'm too lazy to track them down What kind of TV do you have? Does it support HDMI, DVI, VGA, RCA ports? Regardless, there should definitely be a way to do so, but I can't say exactly without knowing what ports your TV has.

Depends on your computer.. if you have the macbook it should have a mini-dvi port. You can buy a mini-dvi to video or mini-dvi to dvi cable from apple for like $19... depends on what tv you have and what ports it has. It most likely has video and if its a newer tv it should have dvi.
