Do I need VGA output to connect a new laptop to a VGA projector?

Jamie M August 25, 2013

I have a projector and second monitor with VGA in. I want a new laptop with Windows 8 touchscreen, camera, & DVD. Do I have to find one with VGA out? Can I use HDMI to VGA cable? If I need VGA out can you recommend a laptop?

    Most of the laptops have a VGA port on it. But even if not, then in that case you can find a converter to HDMI or even to S-Video. So there is nothing to worry about it!

    You can get HDMI to VGA converters. They cost £5-20 and usually work very well, though I can't guarantee they'll work for you.
