Use the HDMI ports and a cable and it'll work great. Forget bothering with USB crap.
yeah, thru an HDMI port.
As far as I remember, my friends connected the macbook to the monitor using usb. By the way, now I also have a macbook. I thought I couldn't afford it, but I found a great one at the refurbhished macbooks UK website. It's a professionally refurbished macbook that works great but it's 30% cheaper. I think it's a very good buy.
Well I suppose it is possible but you'd need something like a female usb to usb lead. At that point it's more logical to buy the actual cable you need weather that;'s VGA or HDMI.
