They don't list the revision on their website. I've ordered a few and have received A02. Since they go in and out of stock, it's extremely likely you'll receive the A02.

This monitor supports VGA, DVI & DisplayPort. Skip VGA. Use either DVI or DisplayPort connections as they are both digital and will produce the best picture. Just check what video connector(s) you have on your Mac and buy the least expensive adapter or cable available.

This should be compatible I use it with a 2011 Macbook Pro and have no issues. The one issue with an Air maybe the model year.

Also Highly recommend displayport to displayport or to DVI , VGA will not display a good image.

Hey Ron,

Yes, the Dell Ultrasharp monitor is compatible with a Macbook Air.

The Macbook Air uses a Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) and the Ultrasharp monitor supports DisplayPort, VGA and DVI-D.

Any Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort, VGA, or DVI-D adapter will work. Any of these adapters will provide you will excellent display quality.

I hope this information is helpful!

The Dell specifications for this monitor can be found at the link below; and according to the details - yes, it is VESA mount specific (though 100x100 isn't shown).

Hello,

I am a Dell representative and I love to speak about the features of our products but unfortunately I do not control pricing and availability here on Best Buy. This monitor is still an active item from Dell, so there is a chance it will be offered here again. Maybe a Best Buy representative will chime in on this question and provide some insight or help. I would keep checking back to see if the system comes back in stock or call Best Buy at 1-888-237-8289.

Hope this helps!
