    I want to buy a VGA-HDMI cable for my external monitor, but I want to know if my iBook G4 supports a digital signal. I have a PPC 6,5 1.33 Ghz maxed out on RAM with 1.25 GB. Below are the video card specs. Will someone please help me?

    Thanks,

    VGA is analog, thus you need a VGA to HDMI converter.

    Also know, that the iBook can only mirror its own display to an external display, thus you are limited to 1024 x 768, though using the Screen Spanning Doctor allows you to extend the display.

    Thanks for the converter info. I've been using Spanning Doctor for a couple of years.
