Con: Files must be smaller than 4 GB in size. Read more »

Macbook VGA adapters available

October 14, 2009 by Sue Weier

The LSS InfoLab has acquired seven Mini DVI-VGA adapters to connect a Macbook to a projector.  The adapters will work with the Macbooks available for check out in the LSS InfoLab, but must be checked out separately.  You can also check out an adapter to use with a personal Macbook.  Please verify the type of connection that you need for your personal Macbook - this adapter will not work with all Macbooks or Macbook Pros.
