    You'll need a mini displayport cable, or mini displayport to regular displayport, both will do.

    If you're using DVI you'll need the Dual-link MDP adapter

    Have you tried just plugging it in with a thunderbolt cable? If your Dell has MDP input, I would think that would be the best way.

    The U3014 does 2560x1600. And the 2012 Mini supports this resolution.

    When you have the full resolution running, can you post a few sentences on your setup? How and for what you use it, how easy it is on the eyes long-term etc?

    I've got a 2012 Mini myself and the U3014 is on my (naturally very short) list of displays to consider.
