Led Thunderbolt display with 2010 MacBook Pro

OK I know my MacBook Pro doesn't have Thunderbolt but only the Mini DisplayPort but I'm a bit lost.
Can I buy the Led Thunderbolt display and make it work with my 2010 MacBook Pro with Mini Display Port?

At the office I just received the new MacBook Air with Thunderbolt and I connect it via a Mini DisplayPort to DVI port and it works.

I'm really lost here.

Or, anyone has a good 27'' screen to recommend that also has USB hub in it?
Thanks.

You cannot use a non TB mac with the TBD, but you can use a TB mac with a non TB display like the 27" Cinema display.

Oh OK, that's why it is working at the office (TB Mac). Well I'll have a look for another 27'' display with USB hub.
Thanks!
