Hey Folks,

After reading a lot of good suggestions from all you guys on monitors, on different threads.
I have come to the conclusion that Dell U2412M is a good buy.
Question is WHY.
Another question is do I need any cable from apple to go with the Mini.
Will buy refurb base from Apple.

Thanks for reading and helping a Mini newbie.
Is this a decent Keyboard?

The Dell Ultrasharp monitor is a high quality monitor, with generally good reviews - for a reasonable price. A lot of people like having the 1920x1200 resolution compared to most monitors in that size which are 1920x1080.

If you choose that monitor, you have a couple of connection options. The cable you linked to will work fine. Or you could simply get a Mini Displayport -> Displayport since that monitor has a Displayport connection as well. The Mini also comes with an HDMI -> DVI adapter, so you could also do a cheap DVI cable like this one http://www.amazon.com/DVI-LCD-Monit...UTF8&qid=1389390869&sr=8-1&keywords=dvi+cable I bought two to hook both of my monitors up and they worked great for me.

Got the Dell 2412 last night, Nice Monitor.
Came with a CD for drivers.
Went to Dell.com/drivers to check if I needed anything, can't find OS X.
Do I need any Drivers or it's fine the way it is?

Thanks
