Adding TV out to a laptop...

I recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 and unfortunately it doesn't have an S-Video port for a TV out option like my old HP. It's not that big of a deal, but I do like having the ability to view Netflix "Watch Now" titles on my LCD as opposed to a 15.4" computer screen.

Anyway, I ran across this. Any better/cheaper alternatives?

I don't know of anything you can get that's cheaper than that.

It is nice having all those different output options.

Does your LCD have a VGA port? You might just need a basic VGA cable...

That looks like your best bet to me.
