    Mini Displayport to VGA.

    Monoprice has one for $10. Apples is $29.

    Yes it will.

    Your ports should look like the one on the right and the one on the left.

    Here's Apple's FAQ on Minidisplay port and Thunderbolt.
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204154

    See:
    1. Can I connect a Mini DisplayPort monitor or monitor using a Mini DisplayPort adapter to a Thunderbolt port on my Thunderbolt-equipped Mac?

    Hope it helps.

    Probably, but we use generic ones at our Uni and never had any problems, I wouldnt spend any more money especially if you are only outputting VGA.
