Question

hooking up a VGA monitor to an i5 mac mini

by cheriknows / July 22, 2013 9:29 AM PDT

I upgraded my mac mini dual core to an i5 and was horrified to learn that not only do I need to buy a different adapter now, but it's horribly confusing what is the cheapest way to hook up. I have two adapters and neither will seemingly do any good at all. Advice?
