If your samsung monitor has a VGA input connector you need the mini VGA to VGA adapter and VGA cable (male to male):

If the monitor has composite video connector (yellow) then you need the mini VGA to video adapter and a composite cable (male to male):

These two adapters do not carry audio signal so you'll also need an audio cable (male stereo mini jack connector on one side to 2 male RCA connectors to the other end) to connect the macbook audio line out to the monitor RCA ports.
