As far as I know, monitors are compatible with ALL computer systems - I've always had a PC not a MAC (I always thought MAC's came as a package deal) but I guess if your monitor "goes" and your "guts" are still working...heck, why not try? I've had great luck with all HP products, great customer support/services.
I really don't know. I have windows that is three years old and it worked great. I can say that their service is superior and I feel they could walk you through any problems. Hopes this helps. Let me know.
