At first glance the new 27-inch Apple monitor looks identical to the now discontinued version but the new monitor comes with added Thunderbolt connectivity and a docking station solution. With just one Thunderbolt data cable and a power cable Macbook users can connect their Macbook with Thunderbolt output to the 27” monitor. Currently the new Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac and Mac mini feature Thunderbolt.

The new 27” LED Cinema Display is the first monitor to support Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt standard supports 10Gbps transfer speeds in bi-directional channels. The extremely high transfer speed allows users to connect external hard drive but also displays, making Thunderbolt an alternative to HDMI and DVI. Lastly, Thunderbolt allow users to daisy-chain LED Cinema Displays, which means that the Macbook is connected to the first display that is then connected to the second display.

The LED backlight also helps Apple to lower power consumption considerably compared to traditional 27-30 inch monitors.
