Yes, you can use any monitor with your Macbook if the monitor has a DVI-D port. But you will need to get a Thunderbolt/DisplayPort-to-DVI-D converter. I don't recommend getting the converters at Apple because they are overpriced, like many retail HDMI cables, so get them at MonoPrice or here.
I just ordered a DVI-D dual cable and will use the little adapter you can buy at Best Buy to make my connection. My MacBook Pro is about 3 years old. Newer ones may have a different video card. I have been unable to use the recommended resolution as it will not fill up my screen. I have had to use 1280 x 800 LED to fill up the screen and get a good picture. Not sure why this is unless my older MacBook does not support that resolution. The picture is magnificent. Be sure and install the driver CD that comes with this monitor as it may be your MacBook does not have it.
