Connect your MacBook to an AOC monitor for a dual-monitor set-up or to view digital files on a larger screen. The Mini DisplayPort included on the MacBook allows you to export the video feed from the laptop's video card to a monitor or other external display. Although the Mini DisplayPort is a native feature of the MacBook, you will need to purchase an additional adaptor to unlock its functions.
