    Can I connect my 15' macbook pro to samsung 214T monitor? What cables do I require?

    I only recently switched to mac and previously worked on a PC for photo editing using a samsung 214T monitor

    Rather than buying a new monitor I would rather use the 214T as I really like it and it is accurate. Plus I prefer the matte finish.

    Thank you

    Your monitor probably uses a DVI connection. In that case, the cables you'd need would all depend on the model of MacBook Pro you have.

    If you have one of the current, unibody MacBook Pros, you'll need a mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter + DVI cable.
    If you have one of the previous models of MacBook Pros, all you need is a DVI cable, no adapter is needed.
