    Hi- I have an ibook G4 (mid 2005). I'd like to be able to connect it to my new 22" external display so that I can have dual monitors. However, the external display plug obviously does not fit into the slot in the ibook.

    Does anybody know the name of the converter cable I would need to buy in order to connect the external display to my ibook? And roughly how much these cost?

    Thanks in advance!

    The adapter in the link is for a display with a vga plug. Make sure of the type of plug that the display can use. It could be HDMI or DVI-D.

    edit: the G4 video output is Mini vga regardless of what the monitor has.

    now what?

    ok, so once you have the mini-vga converted to VGA what cable is needed? Can you get a VGA that is male - male on both ends?
