I have a new MacBook Pro 10/09 and want to connect it to Panasonic which has HDMI 3 connection. Which adapter/cables do I need? Sound cables too?

you need the mini display port to DVI adapter.
you also need a digital cable with DVI male on one end and HDMI on the other.
the only difference between the output of your computer and and the HDMI cable is audio. Most digital sets nowadays serve very well as an external monitor. most have an audio input dedicated to play with a certain HDMI port. you would need an audio cable that has 1/8" mini stereo male on one end with the normal red/white RCA male plugs on the other end.
On the vizio in my office, I think it will play audio over any of the 3 inputs. I believe the Mitsibushi in the living room requires me to use HDMI port # 3 in order to sync up the two inputs.
