Experience the Difference
The Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter lets you connect a standard analog VGA monitor to a Mac Pro, Mac mini, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air with either a Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt port.

The latest models of MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air each have either a Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt port that allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.

Use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air to a standard analog monitor, projector, or LCD that uses a VGA connector or cable. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

Rating: 4/5 Excellent product with one possible problem October 24, 2015 This product works as advertised. However, it is difficult to impossible to secure a VGA video cable to the threaded holes in the adapter. I am still working to find out why. Your mileage may vary.

Rating: 5/5 Beats Apple hands down May 30, 2014 After purchasing a Mini DisplayPort ->VGA adaptor from my local apple store, returning it for a replacement and finding it worked no better than the 1st one (i.e. not at all) I purchased this item from OWC and have been using it with my tried and true 10 year old (probably older) VGA monitor with my recently purchased MBP. Thank you NewerTech and OWC!!!
