    Default Mini DisplayPort to VGA or to DVI?

    At the moment I'm buying a refurb Macbook and would like to buy an adapter with it so
    i don't have to pay postage charges later.

    In the future, I'm contemplating hooking it up to a 20-22" external monitor, so will need an adapter for that.

    If it was just the monitor then I'd probably get a DVI adapter, I'm just worried that I may have to use a hard-wired VGA-only projector setup like they have at school.

    Thanks in advance for your advice,

    Not sure what advice we can give? If you have to use VGA in the future you're stuck buying another $30 adaptor. If using your LCD screen with DVI connection is not worth $30 to you then just buy the VGA adaptor.
