The new Thunderbolt Cinema Display

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So... I've dug around and didn't find too much hope for my question, but here it goes.


Can I connect the new thunderbolt cinema display to my pc laptop? What about a 2010 macbook pro? I read reviews saying it can be done connecting it to a pc through an adapter, but I have yet to find anything.


Anyone have any info on this?

I have had a quick look into the thunderbolt display for non thunderbolt devices just recently and it looks like they won't work. Macrumors has a article regarding the multi monitor support which mentions what's supported.



The rumors you heard are probably regarding to using a Apple cinema display and thunderbolt display, the ACD only works when you have it after in the daisy chain to a thunderbolt device eg.


computer (thunderbolt) --> display (thunderbolt) --> display (non-thunderbolt)


computer (thunderbolt) --> External HHD (thunderbolt) --> display (non-thunderbolt)
