    I don't think there's anything realistic you can do. That display requires DVI-Dual Link, which the Mini just doesn't have. Not to mention that the max resolution of the Mini is substantially lower than the 30" ACD native resolution. I don't think you can drive Dell's 30"-er either.

    Erm...beats me! Explain to the gift-giver why you cannot use it and return/exchange it? Get a computer that can use it (a MacBook Pro is probably the cheapest Mac option).

    Send it to me for a full refund.

    Note,
    this process may take up to 50 years payable after that time by me in sums of $0.50 a year. thank you.

    That's exactly what I would do! I'd get an entry level MacPro, you couldn't be happier!
