    I've never owned a Mac before, but I've been so impressed with my iPhone over the last 10 months or so that I'm considering buying a Mac Mini.

    I assume that I'll need to pick up an Apple Mouse & Keyboard, but do I have to buy an Apple Display? Will my existing Dell monitor work with a Mac?

    I assume that it would, but I figured that I'd check first. The monitor makes the difference between spending over $599 or spending over $1198!

    Thanks!

    Anything DVI will work. Welcome!

    You don't need an Apple Keyboard or Mighty Mouse, either.

    It'll work fine. You don't need an apple mouse. Keyboard is probably convenient since it will have the apple key.

    VGA will work too, if you want to pay $20 for the adapter. And I wouldn't go with the MightyMouse. Keyboard is excellent but mouse will gum up after a while, and now I'm just using a regular PC Mouse and its faring better.
