    It depends on what connection types your external screen/tv supports. In most cases HDMI will be an option. To connect my Macbook Air to my monitor via HDMI I have a mini display port to HDMI adaptor and a cheap HDMI cable. Plug it all in and you're ready to go.

    You will probably need an adapter. FInd out the port your monitor uses, then get a mini display port to (your port) adapter.
