    Im not sure about an apple comp, but when I hook up my laptop I use a VGA cord. There cheap on ebay, but you should buy them at the store since some are different.

    You can plug in your VGA cord to the TV, if not, you need a converter from DVI to HDMI. Depends how new your tv and laptop are. If they are really old, there is a converter for the 3 plugs ( red,yellow,green). Thats all I know, I hope it helps, I don't need rep or anything :p

    The latest MacBooks either have a mini dvi or minidisplay port. You can get a converter for either of these to dvi from the apple store.

    You can then connect this to your tv with a dvi to hdmi cable (I'm assuming you have an hdmi input on it). If you don't, it really depends on what outputs your laptop has and what inputs your TV has available basically.

    Tell me your specification and I can tell you what you need.
