laptop connectivity to TVs

  talisker 14:30 26 Apr 2009

About to buy a low cost(ish) laptop and will want to connect it to a bog standard old CRT TV and in a few months LCD TV - HD ready. Not bothered about Blu-Ray and would like to know what connections to check for on potential laptop. Seen a fantastic deal but laptop doesnt have HDMI connection so would I be able to connect it to a new HD ready LCD TV? Obviosly cant connect to HDMI socket on TV but wondered if there is some sort of adaptor? Would appreciate advice. Many thanks

Laptop will come with a standard VGA connector, so need to know what type of connection is

on the CRT TV and also what connection is listed for the LCD HD TV before one can suggest

the right cables to get
