Introducing the world’s first Thunderbolt display. Thunderbolt technology built in. Thunderbolt I/O technology lets you move data between devices and 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. The ultimate docking station. With just one cable, connect any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac and get 27 inches of high-resolution screen space, high-quality audio, a FaceTime HD camera, FireWire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet ports — and a Thunderbolt port you can use to daisy-chain additional high-performance peripherals such as hard drives and video capture devices. Plug in and power up. The Thunderbolt Display includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. The connector sits on desk, ready and waiting. No need to unwind the cord to the power adapter that came with notebook. Leave it exactly where it is, in bag. A bigger display for biggest ideas. Connect Thunderbolt-enabled Mac to the 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 MacBook Air. More pixels for MacBook Pro. And a worthy desktop companion to iMac or Mac mini. LED backlighting. 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. Built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone. With the built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone, you can connect Mac desktop or notebook — open or closed — and make HD video calls* or take a few snapshots using Photo Booth.
