    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.
