    The old iBooks used to ship with those cables, I dunno if they still do but you should have a wee hunt around in the macbook box just in case.

    it does depend on the macbook pro, the older ones still had the dvi socket (where a simple dvi to vga would work), the newer ones have the display port :)

    You simply need a VGA cable and you should have the adaptor with your laptop to convert the VGA cable to DVI to be able to connect to your MacBook :D
