Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
If you let me know the model name of your Mac book, i would be of better help to you. Nowadays, most laptop comes with Dvi port (digital video interface) as shown below, and your Tv has the Hdmi (High definition multimedia interface). If you know that your macbook has Dvi port on it, you can buy a cable like this (Dvi to Hdmi)
You can also look at the below images for your better reference.
I hope this helps. Good luck

Ok, i do the same connection between my computer and HDTV, except, i don't use a macbook. The cables used in doing this is standard, so, all you need to buy is a HDMI or DVI cable.
Although your computer has a HDMI output as well, which carries video and sound simultaneously, the picture quality is the same for both cables.
So, the only restriction you have the the input ports on the TV. If the TV does not have an HDMI or DVI port, you will need to use component.
Here is what the DVI port looks like on the computer as well as the TV.
This is a HDMI port:
So, basically you can use either of the above connections, HDMI carries sound as well, where DVI only carries video.
The cables are very cheap, just be sure what input ports your tv has before you buy.
Hope this can be of help.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

For that you need to purchase HDMI or vga cable to connect to tv.
It's depend on your TV find the HDMI or VGA port on tv then purchase that cable to connect tv to laptop.
Then connect mac to tv then make sure screen reoution is set to 1024*768 then you can get display on tv.
Most of laptop use Fn key + F5 to toggle the screen to external display.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
