Yes, there are no specific drivers for Windows but it will default to a 1920x1200 display if you are connected to a DVI-D graphics card with the attached DVI-D Dual cable.

Thanks. This leads to another question. Since there is no power cord on the monitor and the only connector is a 30 or 34 pin connector, which is unlike anything on my Levono K230 computer, how do I get power to the monitor?

An answer seems always to lead to another question, which I've submitted.

The Cinema series has Apple's own ADC adaptor which take power, USB and the DVI signal
You'll need Apple's ADC power adaptor to supply the juice and give a normal DVI plug (you also get a USB hub thrown in!)
