Apple Thunderbolt Display
The Apple Thunderbolt Display is a flat panel computer monitor sold by Apple Inc., introduced on July 20, 2011. It is the only display currently sold by Apple, replacing the former Apple LED Cinema Display. New to the Thunderbolt Display is the switch from Mini DisplayPort and USB to a single Thunderbolt connection for data transfer between computer and display. The increased throughput from switching to Thunderbolt enables inclusion of a Gigabit Ethernet port and a FireWire 800 port on the display. Older model Macs with Mini DisplayPort, including all Macs introduced in 2010, are incompatible with the Thunderbolt Display.
