T520 -- Connecting to a Plasma TV

I would like to display my computer on a Panasonic Viera TC-P50ST30. I am wondering what cable I need to accomplish this.


My computer has a "monitor connector" on the side which looks like a regular monitor connector that laptops have had forever.


It also has a connection the user manual calls a "display port connector". I have no idea what this is.


As for the TV--I am attaching screenshot from it's manual.


What kind of cable should I ask for at the store in order to be able to connect my computer to the TV?

Re: T520 -- Connecting to a Plasma TV

To get best possible connection you need DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable. You connect DisplayPort side of cable into DisplayPort on your T520 (it's located on the left side) and HDMI side of cable to your TV (marked as circled A next to "Best" in your PDF). Such cable cost US $8 to $11 delivered on eBay or Amazon. Both video and audio signal will be passed to your TV this way.
