    MBP model? Newer ones use a mini Display Port for output while the older models have a DVI output port.

    Whichever model you have will require using an adapter to VGA unless your 5 year old Trinitron has a DVI input.

    Also... CRT type TV displays do not (in my opinion) make good monitors for a computer since they're limited in resolution. Your Sony will more than likely be only able to display low resolutions. 1024 x 768 maybe? And sometimes setting the correct refresh rate can be difficult.

    Regards.

    it's an older MBP but thank you very much for the advice and having used an adaptor for a different tv previously i've aware the picture will diminish etc. but that's cool and has been accounted for, thanks for the advice!
