    What cable (s) do I need to connect a 2011 MacBookPro (thunderbolt port) to HP LP 2475w monitor?

    Thank you,
    Jack

    Don't bother with Apple's adapter. Spend less than 1/3 as much and get what is essentially the same thing.

    Agreed. I spent $3 on something like this, and it has functioned perfectly for 2 years so far. No need to shell out the $30 that Apple wants.

    HP LP2475w has a DisplayPort too, so a miniDisplayPort to DisplayPort cable is also an option.

    That is true also. If you don't want to bother with an adapter, just go for a cable. Monoprice (the site I linked to in my first post) sells those as well, in a variety of lengths, all still for less than what you'd pay for the Apple-branded adapter.
