    Need to connect my Macbook 13" to television.

    I have the newest Macbook.

    What are the connection options?

    mini DVI to VGA?

    mini DVI to composite or sVideo?

    What is the best option here and what sort of adapter do I need?

    Thank You

    It's not DVI. Either that or you don't have the newest MacBook. Either that or you should probably tell us the color of your computer, because we can't help you otherwise.

    Perhaps I am confused about the connection.

    I have the silver Macbook 13"

    What sort of connection does it have, what are my connection options
    and what adapters will I need?

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Mini Displayport to DVI adapter, Then DVI to HDMI cable, to connect to your HDTV. You will also need a RCA to Headphone jack cable.
    Someone should really make a sticky with all this information, as I have had to post this information on multiple occations.

    So, basically, a mini DVI port and a mini display port are two
    different animals?

    Quite different, an adapter for one will certainly not work with the other.
