It's much thicker, which should increase durability. I've always had great luck with their cables. You're probably not going to find the same quality in a store for that price.

the 15ft cable is thicker than the 10ft? but will the resolution be any better? i just don't see the point in buying a 15ft vga cable and then have a 10ft audio cable..

No, resolution is determined by your television. Just browse the website, and select your own size. It's all your preference.

VGA only supports up to 720p IIRC

Your notebook could have an adapter for a composite signal if it has a Mini-DIN output.

That's a bit tricky. You would need a converter for that.
