    27 Cinema Display mini display port will work with older Macs with mini display port only output. They will also work with thunderbolt Macs (as the last device in chain).
    27 Cinema Display thunderbolt version will only work work when plugged into a thunderbolt port in the newer Macs.

    So , if you have a new Mac with thunderbolt port , get either version.
    If you have a Mac without thunderbolt port, get the old mini display port version.
