Introduction

The Apple 27-inch Thunderbolt Display is a sleek, clean monitor designed to be used primarily with Mac computers that have a Thunderbolt port. It is LED-backlit and widescreen oriented. Unlike traditional monitors, it has no built-in controls and cannot even be turned on without being first plugged into an Apple computer, such as a Mac Mini or MacBook Pro. It does, however, feature a built in speaker system, microphone, and HD camera, as well as a MagSafe connector (for charging a MacBook) and a number of ports.
