Which Plasma HDTV with MacBook?

    Can my MacBook drive a plasma HDTV? In terms of just resolution, it
    seems possible: HDTV is 1920x1080 and my MacBook is supposed to be
    able to do up to 1920x1200. One issue is that most plasma TV's I've
    seen have 15-pin VGA input, rather than DVI. Is there a converter for
    this? Are there other issues that could be a problem?

    Thanks.

    I haven't tried it but you can get an Apple Mini DVI - VGA converter
    cable for the MacBook for about $20 from Apple. It should work.
