Consider this something every man should know how to do. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about how to connect your Mac to your tv, but if you get the right instruction, it’s actually pretty easy. The above video is the best we’ve found. The products you need are all available on Amazon for under $30; mini-VGA to VGA display adapter, VGA monitor cable and stereo cable.

UPDATE: Actually if you’ve got an Intel Mac and a TV with an HDMI connection (you probably do), then Mini-DVI to DVI and DVI to HDMI offer a better picture. You’ll still need the same sound adapter and the downside here is that you’ve probably already got your cable or satellite hooked up to your TV’s one HDMI input.
