Just as the title says, I want to connect a computer to an HDMI TV. Anybody know a good way to do this? We just got a TV, but the weird part is it does not have a DVI or VGA port, just three HDMIs and a USB or two. The problem is my laptop does not have HDMI. It has an esata(doubt that's useful here), a USB, a VGA and a microphone and headphone port. Is it possible that the VGA can double as DVI or something?

So, to clarify, I need to connect to HDMI using some kind of converter, and from my knowledge a VGA to HDMI is ussually 50+ dollars(to convert analog to digital), and I only want to spend no more than about 20. So anyone know a good way to go about this?
