    Thunderbolt acts as a mini DisplayPort so any such adapter will work. I purchased one from a local computer store for less than $10.

    Thunderbolt includes MDP

    You can use Mini Display Port accessories with a Thunderbolt port. My wife has a MacBook Air, and I have a MacBook Pro, both with Thunderbolt, and we use Mini Display Port adapters for DVI and HDMI.

    You should be able to use one too.

    All of those links should be fine. Just be sure it has audio support.

    Also, Apple doesn't make an adaptor that goes to HDMI.
