The Mini DisplayPort to VGA active converter cable, model MDP2VGAMM15W, allows you to connect your desktop or laptop equipped with Mini DisplayPort directly to a VGA monitor or projector at a longer distance than a standard length cable allows, which avoids having to buy additional adapters. The cable has an elegant white design, suitable for connection to Mac® computers. It is also the perfect accessory for any of your Microsoft® Surface ™ Pro devices equipped with Mini DisplayPort.
In addition, since the converter cable supports video resolutions up to 1920×1200, it is possible to convert a DisplayPort video source to VGA without deteriorating the video quality.
