    I want to use my Macbook Pro as a desktop with external display. What hardware and materials do I need to set this up?

    There are a few TV models that have DisplayPort, in this case you need the cable that fits. This should be a bit more common on monitors.

    For a 4K display with HDMI 2.0 ports, if your Mac has DP 1.2, you need the proper active converter for 4K@60Hz.
