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 built right into your display. Which makes the Apple Thunderbolt Display so much more than just a pretty screen.
With its 27-inch LED-backlit screen, the 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, three USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 800, and Gigabit Ethernet. All through a single connection. The Thunderbolt Display includes a MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter and a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. So you can keep your notebook’s power adapter in your bag, ready and waiting for when you’re on the go.
