Mac Mini -> Regular PC Monitor

Alright, admittedly I have no clue about the Mac Mini hardware but I was thinking about getting one for my mom. She currently has a 19" monitor she uses for her XP machine and I wanted to make sure it would work if I moved her to a Mac.

Thanks

Josh

Yes it would! The Mac mini comes with ana adoatpr for regualr VGA monitors. It should work fine.


Just make sure the keyboard and mouse you use (if you aren't buying the Apple versions) use USB connectors.

Yes, that's right, my VGA monitor works fine with the mini using the adaptor.

You can also use bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse with the mini, I do.

The mini is a great little computer if you don't need graphic-intensive gaming.
