Connecting your Apple iMac 27" or Cinema Display using only one connection similar to Thunderbolt Display

Tuesday, 30 August 2011 22:15 by Michael Olivero

In this video, I diagram the various options for connecting an iMac 27" (as a display in target display mode), a Cinema Display, & the new Thunderbolt Display to a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with thunderbolt port.

It turns out, you can achieve the same results as a thunderbolt display (having to connect only a thunderbolt cable) using either an iMac 27" or Apple Cinema Display.

In the video below I diagram the options and actually uncover some benefits in connecting a Cinema Display or iMac over utilizing the newly released Thunderbolt Display.

NOTE: To see details, you may have to switch to the HD 720 on the bottom right of the video screen and/or choose full screen
