    Hi,

    Does anyone have experience with this new Dell monitor?

    I see that it supports USB-C connectivity and HDMI.

    I am trying to confirm if my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports, with Intel Iris Graphics 550 1536 MB graphics) will display on it before making the purchase? It's quite expensive so I want to be sure!

    Thanks for any help provided.

    Hi there,

    I use the 34 inch version, the 3419DW and it works great with my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017)

    The USB-C connection provides a 3440 x 1440 signal @ 60 Hz while charging your laptop, and also passing through keyboard/mouse - so you only need the one cable to your laptop.

    Hope this helps.

    Many thanks for your reply. It’s helpful. What graphics hardware/firmware does your 2017 MacBook Pro have?

    My MacBook Pro 2017 just has the Intel HD630.

    Seems to work well enough to drive the Monitor and Built-In display simultaneously.

    Apple engineers only seem to test MacOS using 12 inch MacBooks. If you buy this or any other large external monitor to use with a Mac laptop, you may as well cover the entire screen with a sheet of cardboard and cut out a section in the bottom left corner.

    Below are examples of working with applications and Finder windows on a MacBook Pro laptop screen, then connecting a 30 inch, 2560x1600 monitor as the main display.

    1. Finder windows that were in the top left corner or the center of the laptop screen now open in the bottom left corner of the 30 inch monitor.
    2. Applications such as Photos, News, Stocks which I put in the center of the laptop screen now open in the bottom left corner of the 30 inch monitor.
    3. Documents from applications such as Keynote and Omnigraffle which filled the laptop screen now open in the bottom left corner of the 30 inch monitor.
    4. DMG disk image files for various downloaded applications frequently open in the in the bottom left corner of the 30 inch monitor by default.
    5. Some applications such as DVD Player in MacOS 10.14 Mojave or Powerpoint keep opening in the bottom left corner of the 30 inch monitor no matter how many times I move the application window.

    I first noticed these issues in Yosemite 10.10 and they continue to this day. If you think this looks annoying on a 30 inch monitor, imagine how it will look on larger ultrawide monitors. I have never seen an operating system handle window positioning as STUPIDLY as MacOS.
