Yes, but you need this: PTC Mini-DVI to HDMI Adapter with 6ft HDMI Cable for Macintosh for HDMI. Otherwise, it has DVI, so just use this if you don't want HD (need video card with more than 128MB video memory): http://www.amazon.com/Apple-M9321G-Mini-DVI-DVI-Adapter/dp/B000EK76K8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1239132637&sr=1-1

I have the miniDVI to DVI adapter, and that works fine. The new Unibody Macbooks and Macbook Pros have a miniDisplay port, so you'll need this if your laptop has the new Unibody design: http://www.amazon.com/PTC-Premium-DisplayPort-Adapter-cable/dp/B0021YDRUI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1239132767&sr=1-1

You can't connect to this monitor with those kinds of signal ports. The monitor only has one analog input ("VGA") and the other is the high-performance input, direct digital ("HDMI").

You have:
Line out video (this is called "composite video")
S-video out (step above composite)
Component video out (this is Red, blue, & green with sync, better than S-video).

If you wish to use a PC LCD monitor for general purpose video then you'll have to spend the extra money to get one with the composite and/or component video inputs. I know one 23.6" (or is it 24"?) LG model handles this, near $300.

Can I connect this directly to my DVD player? My DVD player has the following: "Line out video"; "S-Video out"; "R, L Audio out"; "Component video out" (which is 3 RCA size jacks); "Digital out coaxial" (which is one RCA size jack). Thanks.
