    Title says all.

    I'm going to buy the next iteration of the 12" MacBook whenever it's announced, and one accessory I will definitely be picking up is a USB-to-monitor dongle.

    The thing is, however, I would like the ability to output to both VGA and HDMI (not simultaneously, obviously). I know that Apple offers USB-to-VGA and USB-to-HDMI dongles separately, but I figure I would try to save a bit and instead, buy a USB-to-VGA dongle from Apple and a third-party HDMI-to-VGA dongle. Would that work just as well, or is this going to be a case of "you get what you pay for"?

    Best to search the forum first, as I believe the Dell adaptor may not work with the Retina Macbook. The one below certainly has issue.
