    Possible with the right DVI or VGA or even HDMI adapter:

    Then go to System Preferences > Displays >> Arrangement and see if MIRROR DISPLAYS is checked. If checked, the external display will be set to the lowest common resolution, which is 1280 x 800 in this case and it mirrors the MBP's internal display. If deselected, you can then choose the native resolution of the external display and you have a dual monitor setup, albeit with vey different monitor sizes (13" and 24").
