    You'd have to tell us which MacBook Pro you have.

    And you're in the wrong forum section.

    Well the MacBook uses a thunderbolt display port (which is just really an advanced MiniDisplay port). So it really just depends what your monitor allows as to what connector/cables you need.

    Get a mini display port to HDMI/DVI/VGA/Whatever-connector-is-available-on-your-monitor cable
