Connecting laptop to TV

I have a Samsung RC520 laptop which I would like to connect to my Samsung 43 Class Plasma 490 Series TV. What cable do I need to buy to connect the two so I can transfer TV programmes from my laptop to my TV. Also, do I need something to connect the sound?

Thanks - perfect. Do I need anything in addition for the sound or does it all come across on the cable you suggest?

Sound should come through HDMI cable, if nt you may need to go into control panel audio settings and set HDMI sound.

try it first.
