Just wondering if you are you able to connect Chromebooks successfully to a data projector? What extra equipment etc do you need? Thanks

    Hi Lynne,

    My Samsung CB has an HDMI port - use HDMI cable to connect to your HDMI projector. Many schools, though still have the TELA funded (?) Sony projector with only VGA connection. I bought a HDMI to VGA adapter, however, it doesn't work for me. From some research I did it appears I would have needed to choose such an adapter with power supply (I can still use that adapter for my apple TV etc.).

    There is also Chromecast, to my knowledge still not available in NZ, I had ordered mine from the US via ebay. It is supposed to work similar to an apple TV by mirroring the content of the Chrome Browser / the Chromebook to your screen / projector. I did tutu with it when I first bought it but not for the last 6 months or so - it sounded very promising to me.

    Hope this helps! Monika
