Hi,

I've had a search around but not been able to find an answer.

Can anyone tell me how I can connect a macbook pro to an external monitor.

I have been watching some tutorials on youtube, and some people use usb-c monitors, and docking stations. But I'm unsure what cables I need to do this.

On my to get list so far is:

1. Monitor

2 Keyboard

3. Mouse

4. Speakers

5. Dock - Not too sure if this is needed? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Henge-Docking-Station-MacBook-Retina/dp/B00JPIKNX2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1...

6. Cables.......what do I need?

Thanks

if your macbook pro doesn't have any regular display connections (like displayport or hdmi out), you may need a thunderbolt to hdmi or dp adapter. you might have to look up accessories/adapters for you specific macbook pro model/year, and see whats available for the ports it has. a hub or docking station may be a good option if you want/need those extra features and ports. if your macbook pro is using thunderbolt, i think there are some monitors that can use thunderbolt for display and don't need the adapter.

Its a mid 2014 model. From what I can gather it has 2 x TB ports, 2x USB ports, 1HDMI port and a micro sd slot.
