I am looking to connect a Mac to an external monitor. This is the only port on the Mac, which cable do I need to connect to VGA on the monitor?

Called a mini dvi - adaptor to VGA here

Thanks, will it be long enough?

I think the idea is that it plugs into an existing VGA cable!

Ah, so I'll need a VGA male to female cable too.

Doesn't look as though full length dvi to VGA cables are available, so yes, except you need male to male, I think?.

Something like this: Vga Cable.

Yup, that's the one.

Microsoft pulled the plug. They wanted us to take up 365 at $6 a month.
