Question: touch screen monitor

Does anyone have any information? I was looking at purchasing a Dell touch screen monitor SKU: S2240T but am was curious to know if the touch screen capabilities were compatible with a MacBook Pro. Essentially I am wanting to use this monitor as a second screen for a photobooth-this way clients can operate the photobooth themselves via the touch screen. Are there any touch screen monitors that would work in this situation? And what connections would I need in order to make this work?

Whether its compatible with a Mac would be a question better asked of Dell though Apparently they do not test their products on Apple hardware.


I did find this thread that confirms the monitor actually works on a Mac, but that it may require some 3rd party drivers:

As to what connections you would need, that will depend on the Mac you plan on connecting it to, and what video outputs it has. USB-C? HDMI? Mini Display Port? and what connections the monitor itself supports.


According to Dell's own manual, it appears to support HDMI, and a USB port for the touch functionalities.


So basically an HDMI cable, and a USB cable, both apparently supplied with the monitor.
