I put my MBA into sleep mode, lid is always closed when connected to this display, and it turns on every two minutes to display the login screen. Is this normal interaction with a connected MBA ?
When will there be a new model of this? I assume the new model will:
- have usb 3.0
- have the 2012 MacBook power adapter
- be thin like the new iMacs
I have a MacBook Pro with a buggered up display (it's got a green line running through it). I am planning to get an Apple Thunderbolt Display, the question is will the green line get mirrored on the thunderbolt display thereby defeating the whole purpose?
I'm wondering how it handles being sent a 1080p signal.
I'm looking to build a small-form-factor PC to coexist with an Apple Thunderbolt display; any recommendations for the video card with mini-displayport video output?
How about a mini-ATX motherboard? I'm looking to use a Fractal Design Mini case.
I've got a mid-2010 MB Pro and a mid-2011 MB Air. So the Pro has MiniDisplay and the Air has Thunderbolt.
My primary use case for wanting the 27" display is for work I do on the Pro. I have not found a definitive answer yet of whether the Thunderbolt 27" will work with my DisplayPort MB Pro. I realize that even if it does, that the usb/firewire, etc ports will not, but what about the display?
If the answer is no then I want to grab a DisplayPort model from the refurb store, else I'll probably...
Are there any which match the specs? Here are the specs for the ATD: 27" TFT LCD IPS panel Resolution: 2560 by 1440 pixels Colors (maximum): 16.7 million Aspect ratio: 16:9 Viewing angle: 178° horizontal; 178° vertical Brightness: 375 cd/m2 Contrast ratio: 1000:1 Response time: 12 ms What are your experiences with Apple's displays?
I have a Dell U2711 which I currently connect to with a mini displayport to displayport cable. If I had a thunderbolt Mac and a 27" thunderbolt display, could I run dual display by connecting my existing cable to the thunderbolt display?
Imagine wiring your house with Thunderbolt and getting 10Gbps between all of your devices! I'm not sure the tech can handle long cables... but it's fun to think about.
