Apple Posts Thunderbolt Display Connection Options

Posted by: Staff

Apple has posted a new support document that outlines the connection options for the Apple Thunderbolt Display with Thunderbolt-enabled Macs. Down below is a list from the support document indicating how many Thunderbolt displays can be connected to each of these machines.

  Mac mini (Mid 2011): Two Thunderbolt displays. The Mac mini with AMD graphics can also support a HDMI compatible device on its HDMI port when using two Thunderbolt displays.

  iMac (Mid 2011 and Late 2011): Two Thunderbolt displays. The iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011) with two Thunderbolt ports supports a total of two Thunderbolt displays regardless of which Thunderbolt port each display is connected to.

  MacBook Air (Mid 2011): One Thunderbolt display.

  MacBook Pro (Early 2011): Two Thunderbolt displays. Connecting a second Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-inch) to a 13-inch MacBook Pro will make the screen on the MacBook Pro turn black. This is expected behavior.

Apple also notes in the support document that users are unable to daisy-chain a Mini DisplayPort display off the Apple Thunderbolt Display.
