    yes thunderbolt adaptor.

    I bought one for my air (2012) mine was £6 on ebay unofficial of course.
    I also bought a genuine lan and firewire adaptor at £40 each at apple store.

    yeah thunderbolt to what ever you want.

    my adaptor has thunderbolt to VGA/HDMI/DVI all in one.

    but only use one at time and VGA is limited to 800x600 or 1024x768.
    no limitation on HDMI or DVI

    @Fabmac That is same as I have but bought a cheaper one on ebay.

    tested all the outputs via my 2012 air, all good other than VGA which is limited.
    but DVI to VGA adaptor should take care of that.
