I am a non-techie buying Raspberry Pi as a friend's Christmas present, so please forgive my lack of knowledge - I would love some advice...
I am buying:
1x Raspberry Pi RBCA000 ARM 1176JZF-S Motherboard 512MB RAM / HDMI / 2 x USB 2.0 / 3.5 Watt
1x iZKA® - High Power Micro USB UK Dedicated Mains Power Wall Supply Charger For Raspberry Pi - (5V / 2.1A)
1x 16GB SD card Pre Loaded with NOOBS - Includes Raspbian Wheezy / RaspBMC (XBMC Media Centre) / OpenELEC / PiDora / ArchLinux / RiscOS
and a case
I know he will be using it with his MacBook Pro as it's the only monitor he has. The quick start guide says I need:
- HDMI to HDMI / DVI lead = HDMI to HDMI lead (for HD TVs and monitors with HDMI input).
- HDMI to DVI lead (for monitors with DVI input).
- RCA video lead = A standard RCA composite video lead to connect to your analogue display if you are not using the HDMI output.
I can't seem to find out which a MacBook needs and/or if it's even possible to use a MacBook as a monitor! And have I left anything off the list?!
Can anyone help? Thank you so so much!
