    my dell u2711 has a display port
    does the mac mini 2012 have a display port or must I use the thunderbold port (if the latter do I need an extra adapter)?

    Here is the back of the MM:

    Unfortunately for you, it seems like you will need an adapter for it to work. The only adapter that ships with the MM is the HDMI-DVI option.

    I don't see any way for to avoid getting an adapter. Would I be correct in assuming that you have a display port cable? If so, I would look for a mini-displayport to displayport.

    Second that. Just get a cheapass (black) cable. Don't start with adapters. And if the shop sells black AC cables for 1 buck, get that one too.

    Well, I don't know dell u2711 has following Connectivity: DisplayPort (DP).
    There's also a displayport cable included.
    Do I need to buy something extra? Can someone give an url (internet link) to what exactly?
