    depending on what your TV will take, you can use a mini-display port to DVI or to VGA or HDMI. Then you need a cable to go from the adapter to the TV. So something like this plus a male to male HDMI cable would work.

    Just search for mini display port and you'll find all the adapters you could think of.

    anything that goes to HDMI will set you up just fine, if you have a new unibody MB/MBP you will need the display port -> DVI adaptor then DVI->HDMI adaptor.

    remember - this cable cant do sound, you will need anaother attachment for that!

    Mini Display to HDMI

    I have the new MBP and I recently got the minidisplay port to HDMI from It was about $14. You don't get audo put of the minidisplay. I use an optical cable from the headphone jack to my sound system.
