Apple announces new Thunderbolt enabled display
Apple's Thunderbolt port finds a new home in the newly unveiled 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display
Unveiled alongside the newly refreshed Apple Mac Mini and updated MacBook Air which is set to replace the white plastic MacBook as the company’s entry-level machine, the new 27-inch Thunderbolt Display is to be made available in the UK “within the next 60 days through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorised Resellers” with a £899 price tag.
Boasting a 16:9 edge-to-edge glass design and a 178- degree ciewing angle the stunning 27-inch display is reminiscent of the iMac with the screen’s new Thunderbolt I/O credentials allowing users to connect their new Mac machines to the display using the high-speed connector that features two bi-directional transfer channels capable of transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps each.
“The Apple Thunderbolt Display is the ultimate docking station for your Mac notebook,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With just one cable, users can dock with their new display and connect to high performance peripherals, network connections and audio devices.”
