    Hi,

    Is it possible to take advantage of my external monitor's built in speakers when my MBP is plugged into it? (The monitor is a TV as well). If so, what sort of connector do you imagine I'd need?

    If you have a new macbook pro you could use hdmi for sound and audio.

    Macbook to HDMI speakers

    It looks like only a MacBook made in the last 6 months or so will support sound. You need a separate audio cable. I have a MB from April of 2008 and am debating whether or not to use HDMI or VGA input. Some say there is little difference in picture.
