  • If you mean "power" as in electricity, no. If you mean "signal" yes, but only if you have a Thunderbolt connector or a recentl DVI to Thunderbolt connector. If you have a Mini that does not have a newer set of dual processors you will not be able to use a Thunderbolt monitor.

  • Yes you have to plug in the included power cable into a wall socket when you use it with any Mac as the computer cannot provide enough power to supply both itself and the display.
