    I am thinking of buying this Dell 18" LCD monitor.


    At the bottom of the sreen it say PC compatible. Does this mean I can't use it for the Mac? I am running Panthar with G4 450. I have read some places that you can use it. Does anyone have this monitor, or any Dell LCd for that matter? Thanks.


    Also does $442 New, shipped sound like an ok deal?

    Yes you can, as long as they have the same connectors, a lot of MR members have Dell monitors on their macs.

    I'd stear clear of Dell, look an electronics company, eg: Sharp, Sony, LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Beuq. These guys make great LCD screens at amazing prices and can be used with both DVI and VGA

    Dell uses regular DVI for their monitors. You may have to buy an ADC-DVI converter if you dont have a higher up mac video card (youre SOL is you only have a VGA connector). But, since that link doesnt work anymore, I cant see if its the ultra sharp or not. If it isnt an ultrasharp then you may get a VGA connector, which is better for you because you more than likely wont need an adaptor.
