New Apple ThunderBolt Display
APPLE has released a new ThunderBolt display monitor today. This monitor includes several features.
Thunderbolt I/O technology. It lets you move data between your devices and your computer with unprecedented speed. With two channels of 10-Gbps throughput in both directions, it’s up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800. And it allows you to connect as many as six devices through a single, compact port. Now, for the first time, all that power and flexibility is available through a port built right into your display. Which makes the Apple Thunderbolt Display so much more than just a very pretty screen.
The new monitor features all MagSafe connectors. So if you were to connect your Macintosh Laptop to your Thunderbolt display, and someone were to walk by and “trip” over them it would not harm your laptop what so ever.
You have more abilities to Connect two Thunderbolt Displays to a 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pro or to an iMac and put an extra 7 million pixels to work. To make a desktop workstation out of your MacBook Pro, just daisy-chain additional Thunderbolt devices, including high-performance storage and video and audio capture devices, through the display.
This post is not as in-depth as it could be because the Apple website ThunderBolt display page explains it all much better, with pretty pictures.
