You are capable of connecting your Mini DisplayPort laptop, desktop, or tablet to a VGA display by using an adaptor called an MDP to VGA adapter. The adapter provides plug-and-play connectivity and therefore is compatible with mDP ports in addition to Thunderbolt 1 & Thunderbolt 2 I/O interfaces. This ensures that the adapter may be installed with no effort and without any complications. Only with Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter Cable are you able to directly connect your Mini DisplayPort video source (of that kind as any of one’s MacBook or Microsoft Surface Pro gadgets with mDP) to a DVI monitor or projector. This saves you the cost of upgrading to a monitor that is capable of displaying Mini DisplayPort signals. You can also find Mini DP to VGA HDMI DVI cable in the market.
