Nope. What about headphones?

What's the purpose of the monitoring? If it's basically to make sure you've transferred the LP without a skip, then the computer monitors will be fine.
If you are monitoring the transfer with the idea of making certain you are digitizing the LP as perfectly as possible with attention to accuracy and detail (assuming your software has adjustable parameters to fine tune the transfer), then the computer monitors are not sufficient.
What are you using to digitize? Frankly any old speaker should be OK if you are using one of those cheap USB turntables. If you are serious about preserving album quality on a high TT with pristine vinyl then the first step should be to find a high end A to D converter (sound card). I am not sure I would trust what comes built-in to the mac.
