    I'm gearing up to buy a permanent desktop system, but will be using my MBP as my main computer for the next few months.

    While I decide between mac minis, I am hoping to set up all my peripherals first, most importantly my monitor. Will my MBP be able to drive a 21:9 29" ultra wide monitor without major issues for the time being? Will I need adapters?

    I am not a heavy user, mostly word processing. I'd like to try Scrivener, but that's about it.

    You shouldn't have a problem driving that resolution with the display port cable connection, assuming AOC has PNP that works with mac (should be, since it has display port connection). You'll need a mini display port to display port cable. (you will be able to use the same cable with Mac Mini. (Mini display port was prequel to thunderbolt and uses same connector).

    Thanks for dredging this up from the depths. Probably going yo go with the NEC version on a sale day, big great to know I can get going before a Mac mini release.
