ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology employs a color engine with eight preset modes. These allow you to adjust your display easily for the proper color accuracy and image fidelity, depending on what kind of content is being displayed. You can access the presets via a designated hotkey. The presets include:

The monitor supports either VGA or HDMI. A MAC usually has a form of Display Port. You will need an Apple Video Adapter to connect this to the monitors video input. The Touch screen is connected through a USB Cable. However, Asus does not supply any MAC Drivers to support this. I'm not sure if the MAC will properly recognize the touch screen.
