Apple: Bringing Thunderbolt Display to Stores This Week
Apple will roll out its Thunderbolt Display to market this week.
Apple is said to deliver the Thunderbolt Display to stores this week based on details that emerged on Tuesday. MacRumors said that both the official Apple stores and third-party chains should have the 27-inch screen soon. Online pre-order customers haven’t received shipping notices yet, but some details claimed that the shipping of the Thunderbolt Display will be on September 15.
The display was revealed during the unveiling of the new MacBook Air, and is being used as a full desktop docking station for portables. The 10Gbps Thunderbolt link feeds both the 2560 x 1440 display, as well as gigabit Ethernet, 2.1-channel audio, an HD webcam, FireWire 800 and three USB ports. Apple’s only separate cable for the computer is a MagSafe connector required to supply the extra power for notebooks.
Users can daisy chain as many as five other Thunderbolt devices, even though only one of those devices can be an additional Thunderbolt Display.View Article Source »
