    I'm thinking of hooking up a second monitor along with my Macbook for home use, probably just an older CRT. What kind of adapters do I need to do this? Any help would really be appreciated.:D

    Which MacBook do you have?

    If you have plastic one, you can use mini-DVI to Video adapter; then use composite (the yellow headed RCA) cable to connect your TV. It probably won't auto detect, so you may need to set the resolution manually; 640x480 should be what it is.

    I don't think they make an adapter for the unibody MacBook [yet].

    EDIT: Looks like I read the post wrong; well if you have a CRT monitor follow what NewMacbookPlz said, if you have a TV… mine will do you fine.

    He never mentioned hooking it upto a TV. CRT monitors WERE for computers too :p
