If I were to walk in an Apple Store in a few minutes and buy the best cables to send video and audio from my Black MacBook to a Sharp TV, what would those cables be?

Not necessarily brands, but physical types. Although I'll gladly consider your recommendations.

Hardware: Late 2007 MacBook & Sharp LCD LC-42SB45U.

Inputs to TV:

2 sets of Component video with RCA Audio
1 set of S Video and RCA Audio
1 PC (VGA)

Obviously this model MacBook has mini-DVI out for video and a 3.5mm stereo out.

Additionally, these cables could work for a Mac mini, correct?

You should first get a DVI to HDMI cable similar to this one http://www.monstercable.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=2445. This cable should be connecting to the Input 5 of your TV. And then you should get a 3.5mm audio cable to connect to the "Audio HDMI/PC" port.

This is how I set up for my Mac mini in the living room for my movie watching.
