I have a Dell inspiron one 2330 all in one and was wanting to connect it to a mac mini to use ut as the monitor. Does anyone know if the HDMI port is compatible with connecting it to a mac mini?

I think the HDMI socket on the Inspiron is an output. Dell says it is no longer available so doesn't publish specs but this review refers to the HDMI connector for driving a second monitor -

I might normally say 'suck it and see' but if I were you I would seek definite information on whether or not you can treat this HDMI socket as an input before you try it.

Thank for your prompt response. I was able to connect it and theres a button on the side where you can switch the input to HDMI so it will act as an external monitor for the mac mini.

 

Again thank you for your help.
