    My uncle have been experiencing window virus..etc. Since he not very computer savvy, I thought of getting him an mac mini. I am not too familiar with Mac hardware. If I get him a mini Mac, can I use it with a Dell monitor?

    Dell's work very well with Macs. I've used them for several years.

    Yes, it will work. The Mac Mini comes with a DVI monitor cable, so if your Dell monitor has a DVI input, which, if it was made in the past 5 years or so it almost certainly does, it'll work just fine.

    If his dell also came with a USB keyboard and mouse that will also work with the mini. Just FYI the mini does not come with a keyboard and mouse.
