The Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display introduces Thunderbolt technology to the market, providing ultra-fast speeds. Thunderbolt is 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster that FireWire 800, poising this monitor in a position to change the way you work, play, and more! The 6 ports on the monitor include, of course, the Thunderbolt port, 3 powered USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 800 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a Kensington security slot. That's a lot of flexibility when it comes to connecting other devices to the monitor.
Speaking of other devices, the Thunderbolt Display turns your MacBook into one stunning desktop, but it can also add oomph to your iMac or Mac mini configuration. The glossy 27" widescreen display has an incredible 2560 x 1440 resolution that makes everything you view on it come alive and the built-in speaker system and subwoofer provides full-range audio... which makes the monitor especially nice when using the FaceTime HD camera to chat with family and friends on other Macs. To connect, the monitor simply uses one-cable for Thunderbolt enabled Macs, making it a plug-and-play hub for your entire digital life. Additionally, the monitor comes with the MagSafe connector for powering the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.
