    Can someone post a photo or a link to the correct lead to get so I can add a second vga monitor. Do I get a lead that plugs into the thunderbolt port or the firewire port?
    I have just received a lead I ordered but it's the wrong one, I ordered a mini dvi to vga.

    The thunderbolt port is used for video-out, that port is compaible with (& the same size connector as) mini displayport. So you need a vga to mini displayport.
