Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.
Use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to a standard analog monitor, projector, or LCD that uses a VGA connector or cable. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.
Compatible only with Mac computers with Mini DisplayPort.

I use it to connect a 23" TV to one of the lightning connectors on my iMac. It works just like you'd expect.
I ordered the Pyle PRJLE60 Portable LED Projector with 2500 Lumens Brightness, 640x480 Native Resolution, HDMI and the sales pro at Adorama suggested I buy this adapter to use with my MacBook. It's the right equipment for the job and I was so pleased she'd suggested it, so I could set up and use the projector immediately.
This is exactly what I needed. I use it to use my HDTV as a monitor for my macbook.
