  • Correct. To support Target mode via Thunderbolt both Macs must have a Thunderbolt port (thus 2011 models or higher). Mini Displayport ports are not "forward compatible" with Thunderbolt.

  • No. Mini DisplayPort is only a video connection, not a Thunderbolt port. TB is much higher bandwidth and backwards compatible with MiniDP.

  • Nope, the Mini DV port doesn't support data. it only works from a mac with Thunderbolt to a mac with Thunderbolt. tough the connector is the same as mini display port, it's also not compatible to use it for transferring data from an mac with mini display to a mac with thunderbolt.
