    Impressive run-on sentence!

    The monitor should work fine.

    You'll love your mac pro.

    so even though touch function wont work the monitor will display ok then :) ok i was worried it would only work as external display and i would have to buy a monitor from apple.

    one more question if i install windows 8 on boot camp the touch function would work on windows right???

    Correct, the projected capacitive touch panel overlay used by Dell will work on Boot Camp and not on OS X today without an overpriced special kiosk style driver from Europe. It will run on boot camp and on Parallels / VMWare if you assign the USB device to the VM and not the Mac.

    My 21" Dell touchscreen just arrived today and I'm looking forward to some multi-touch Mavericks OS X action in the very near future.

    its good to know that the touch will work on windows running on boot camp
    but what i like the most is that apart from the touch function it will display and work ok on mac pro.
    thank you for all the help on my doubts on this

    Support for Dell touch in Mavericks?

    Tom- is there some evidence to suggest that Mavericks will fully support the Dell touchscreen? I'd love to get one if so.
