    It can support a 1920x1200 on HDMI/DVI as primary and 2560x1600 on Thunderbolt connector as secondary.

    Hopefully someone will be able to "categorically" veryify that this combination works. Unfortunately I cannot...since I do not have a 2012 Mac-Mini and an Ultrawide display to test with. But here's what I can say...officially this is what a 2012 Mac-Mini can do:

    "2012 Mac-Mini simultaneously supports 1920x1200 on an HDMI display or a DVI display using the included HDMI-to-DVI adapter and 2560x1600 on a Thunderbolt or Mini DisplayPort display or even a VGA display (with an optional Mini DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter, which is compatible with the Thunderbolt port)."

    Since the 2560 x 1080 resolution of the ultrawide display in question falls within the 2560 x 1200 maximum capability of the 2012 Mac-Mini...I would say there's a very good chance it should work. Worst case scenario...you purchase the monitor...try it out...and if it works...great! And if not...then return the monitor (which hopefully is ok too). Just make sure the monitor is purchased from somewhere with "no hassle" returns.

    HTH,

    Nick

    How do you tell, which is primary?
