The active Mini DisplayPort to VGA converter cable, model MDP2VGAMM3B, allows you to connect your desktop or laptop computer equipped with Mini DisplayPort directly to a nearby VGA monitor or projector, which avoids having to buy additional adapters and also avoids the clutter of too many cables. The adapter is the perfect accessory for your Microsoft® Surface ™ Pro or MacBook® devices with Mini DisplayPort.
This adapter cable supports Intel® Thunderbolt ™ when connected directly to a compatible DisplayPort I / O port via Thunderbolt. 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.
