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?

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

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

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