The connector for Macs and PCs is the same physically,
but the pinout or timing is slightly different (think
different!), but the good news is that almost all but
the lowliest budget monitors come with the Macintosh
connector adapter in the box. I am 99% certain the
Mitsubishi would (and I really like their monitors,
though I presently use a Sony).
BTW, that isn't a stupid question. Any time one
verifies thye are not wasting large amounts of money
is a good question, in my book.
