Hi, I have a dell 30" inch monitor and an hp envy 17 laptop. Was wondering if this cable would be compatible, in the overview you have only listed apple products? If not, can you recommend any other products that would be able to power the monitor at full resolution (2560x1600). Regards, Sasha

The C30 unit is overall 2 Feet and 3 1/4 Inches long. The cables themselves are 2 Feet long and the adapter box itself is 3 1/4 Inches long. Thank you.
