Apples' new Thunderbolt Display
 
Apple - Thunderbolt Display - More pixels and more possibilities.

Interesting - it comes with a single cable that splits into a MagSafe and a Thunderbolt cable for sending video to the display and charging your laptop at the same time... cool...

One-cable convenience. Thunderbolt versatility.

With its 27-inch LED-backlit screen, the new Thunderbolt Display delivers a brilliant viewing experience. But connect it to any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac, and it becomes a plug-and-play hub for everything you do. You get 27 inches of high-resolution screen space, high-quality audio, a FaceTime HD camera, and support for FireWire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet. All through a single connection.

I'd love one..but it is very pricey, though not out of line with industry standards I guess. I wish they made a cheaper 24" model

I wished they made a way cheaper version for less than $300... Then again, it's an Apple product. :D

Ooo shiny. In this case that's a bad thing from where I'm sitting (literally). None for me thanks.

Pft. Matte is for wussies. I love the glare version. Makes it look a lot better.

Glare is VERY easy to handle if you think about it. Keep the light BEHIND the monitor and you will be just fine.

Alas it is overpriced as is the norm for Apples monitors. When will they learn. :(

That's VERY easy to say but most desks are pointed at a wall where your source of light will be somewhere behind or beside you.

it isn't just about the glare off the glass. That in of itself, is annoying. But it's what it does to your colors, what it does to your 1px stroke widths, I could go on.

I simply won't get used to it, ever. The upside is, what I design on a matte, looks awesome on a glass.

I just, want the option. And that option will always be, no apple displays. which is too bad really.

What happens when thunderbolt external drives start to appear and you've got your tb port feeding your apple monitor? I'd rather take advantage of transfer speeds to a drive rather than waste the port on the monitor. Or are we going to see tb hubs?

Anyone know?

I think we are expecting hubs just like with USB. Thunderbolt can also be daisy chained like firewire so long the product has in as well as out TBolt ports.
