This is really an Apple product question but, for you guys/gals that use an Apple MacBook Pro laptop, how specifically do you connect it to your non Apple product processing monitor? HDMI, Thunderbolt, etc...

Shouldn't matter.

Thunderbolt is likely the better option though.

I would agree if both have Thunderbolt connections but since the monitor is older I'd have to use the Thunderbolt to VGA adaptor and it's not very well reviewed. I'm thinking of getting a new monitor and of course it would have HDMI ports as does the MacBook. No monitors made these days have Thunderbolt ports that I know of.

I use a Thunderbolt -> HDMI adapter to my ASUS IPS monitor.

Loads of monitor options out there that will directly connect via a thunderbolt connection. DP ports are thunderbolt compatible, so anything that has either DP or mDP connectors will work just fine. My current monitor ONLY has DP and mDP connections, no HDMI connector. It was actually a little disappointing in that I couldn't hook a Sky box up to it directly, although it is 5K, it does actually look very good when running in 4K at 3840×2160.
