Rev. A 12" PowerBooks (867MHz): A VGA Adapter is included and the Apple Video Adapter (for connecting video only to the TV) should have been included. You can purchase the Apple Video Adapter separately if you need to.

Rev. B 12" PowerBooks (1GHz): A Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter and a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter are both included, but the Mini-DVI to Video Adapter (for connecting video only to the TV) is NOT included. The Mini-DVI Video Adapter must be purchased separately.

Rev. C 12" PowerBooks (1.33GHz): A Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter and a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter are both included, but the Mini-DVI to Video Adapter (for connecting video only to the TV) is NOT included. The Mini-DVI Video Adapter must be purchased separately.

Rev. D 12" PowerBooks (1.5GHz): A Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter and a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter are both included, but the Mini-DVI to Video Adapter (for connecting video only to the TV) is NOT included. The Mini-DVI Video Adapter must be purchased separately.

All four model 12" PowerBooks will require a "Y" audio adapter cable to get the audio out of the PowerBook's headphone port and into your TV or VCR.

Knowledge Base Article #86507 has pictures and descriptions of the video adapters used with the 12" PowerBooks.
