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.

Thunderbolt Technology. Built Right In.
Thunderbolt I/O technology 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 pretty screen.
The Ultimate Docking Station
With built-in Thunderbolt and MagSafe connections, the Apple Thunderbolt Display transforms any new Mac notebook into a complete desktop workstation

One-cable convenience. Thunderbolt versatility.
With its 27 inch LED-backlit screen, the new Thunderbolt Display delivers a brilliant viewing experience. But connect it to any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac, and it becomes a plug-and-play hub for everything you do. You get 27 inches of high-resolution screen space, high-quality audio, a FaceTime HD camera, and support for FireWire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet. All through a single connection

MagSafe connector.
The Thunderbolt Display includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. The connector sits on your desk, ready and waiting. No need to unwind the cord to the power adapter that came with your notebook. Leave it exactly where it is, in your bag

Do more with MacBook Air.
Connect MacBook Air to the Thunderbolt Display and you can do even more with a computer that already does a lot. Like adding FireWire peripherals, connecting to Ethernet networks at gigabit speeds, and making large-as-life, HD video calls to other Mac users with the built-in FaceTime HD camera

Expand the capabilities of your MacBook Pro.
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

See the Bigger Picture
A 27 inch widescreen display with LED backlight technology. Stunning is an understatement

A bigger display for your biggest ideas.
Connect your Thunderbolt-enabled Mac to the Apple Thunderbolt Display for a panoramic viewing experience unlike any other. This huge 27 inch glossy widescreen display features a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio and an astonishing 2560-by-1440 resolution. That gives you more room to work with apps on your MacBook Air. More pixels for your MacBook Pro. And a worthy desktop companion to your iMac or Mac mini

LED backlighting. Bright on.
Full brightness with no waiting. That's the big advantage of LED backlight technology. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness. So you can tune the Thunderbolt Display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room

Crystal clear from every angle.
The Thunderbolt Display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS delivers a bright picture with excellent color consistency, even if you're viewing the display from the side

Built-in Face Time HD camera and microphone.
With the built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone, you can connect your Mac desktop or notebook - open or closed - and make HD video calls or take a few snapshots using Photo Booth

Ambient light sensor.
The ambient light sensor intelligently adjusts the brightness of the Thunderbolt Display to your room environment. This gives you the perfect brightness for any situation while using the least amount of energy necessary

Big, beautiful sound.
The Thunderbolt Display gives you more than video. It gives you audio, too. The built-in speaker system includes an integrated subwoofer that delivers immersive, full-range sound for music, movies, and games

Smooth-motion hinge.
Tilt the Thunderbolt Display to get the viewing angle that's best for you. With its smooth-motion hinge, adjustment is effortless. Choose an angle from -5 to 25 degrees
