Note that the NEC PA271W supports 10-bit-per-channel DisplayPort input. The Mini probably only supports 8 bits per channel. That's not saying you would see a black screen on the NEC; only that you might not get all of the degree of color accuracy of which it is capable.

Stepping into that talk for I'm interested as well… The tonal range is compressed to 8 bit per channel, but the full gamut is there even on Mac as I gather. Are there visible steps or other viewing problems that make the wide-gamut screen on Mac a questionable experience ?

Gamut and tonal range have very little to do with each other, wide gamut is not a questionable experience on a Mac or PC with 8 bits.
