You can use any standard HDMI cable. I prefer the Apple cable because it's roughly the same price as other cables, but is much smaller in diameter, more flexible, and reduces the cabling mess behind your TV.
Don't believe any of the "monster cable" claims for supposedly better quality HDMI cables. Digital is digital... if it works, it's perfect, if it doesn't, the picture quality stinks. At typical 3-ft to 6-ft lengths, any cable works just fine.
