Apple Thunderbolt Display unveiled


Apple scores another first with their latest Apple Thunderbolt Display, where it is said to be the first of any display in the world that sports Thunderbolt I/O technology (hence its name, of course), making it the ultimate docking station for your Mac notebook. All it takes is a solitary cable so that you are able to hook up a Thunderbolt-enabled Mac to the new 27 Apple Thunderbolt Display, giving you access to a plethora of ports and connectivity options to boot which you will see in the extended post.

Sporting a beautiful 16:9 edge-to-edge glass design, the Thunderbolt Display will rely on IPS technology which your eyes will definitely appreciate – in fact, I am thinking that looking into this display might be the same as the first experience you ever had with the iPhone 4s screen. Correct me if I am wrong for early adopters of the Thunderbolt Display, where you can do so by leaving a comment.

With an ultra wide 178 degree viewing angle, you can create a full desktop solution with this display after hooking up your Thunderbolt-enabled Mac. Features include an integrated FaceTime HD video camera that delivers crisp video conferencing, a 2.1 speaker system for high quality audio, an integrated MagSafe charger to keep Mac notebooks charged, a trio of USB 2.0 ports (although I would have liked to see USB 3.0 in action here), one FireWire 800 port, one Gigabit Ethernet port and a Thunderbolt port that allows you to daisy chain up to five additional Thunderbolt devices.

With the two bi-directional channels, you are able to enjoy transfer speeds up to an amazing 10Gbps each, now how about that? The built-in ambient light sensor also will help you conserve energy even more as it automatically adjusts the display brightness based on external lighting conditions. Expect the new Thunderbolt Display to arrive within a couple of months time via the Apple Store, Apples retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. It will go for $999, so that gives you 60 days or so to work out your finances to own one.
