    Hi all, I have the new MacBook Pro 13" but I want to link it up to my 50" HDTV via HDMI but I've no idea what cable to buy from the store? Any advice please would be appreciated.

    Either you buy a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable or you buy the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter from Apple or Monoprice.

    The cable, as it only involves one component. The adapter would need another HDMI cable for the way between adapter and TV, but in the end it doesn't matter.

    I'd prefer to go with an adapter and cable, rather than a single cable. That way, you can use the regular HDMI for something else when your MBP ins't plugged in.
