    The older Mac Mini's came with only the DVI connector, but came with a DVI->HDMI adapter if you wanted to connect to a monitor that only supported HDMI.

    The new Mac Mini's comes with HDMI instead. So you will connect that directly to your monitor without the need for any adapter.

    the pc monitor is vga only but we have a 22 inch tv that we may be able to use instead
