Default HD Display??? - 05-16-2011, 06:27 PM

Hello Im looking to upgrade my 1018 screen to HD and found a link on here already but I have another question, im looking to purchase an HD desktop monitor and would like to run my laptop onto it im just wondering if i can get some kind of adapter to connect an HDMI cable. I hope my question makes sense to someone.

you can get an HDMI/VGA adapter cable but I dont think that it will transfer audio only video

Most monitors and many HDTVs have VGA inputs (might be called the "PC" input). The 1018 has a VGA output. So, why do you want an HDMI adapter?
