Anyone have a MacBook Air 2011 with Apple Thunderbolt Display

I want to know if the new MacBook Air can handle the Apple Thunderbolt Display fine? Any graphics performance issues? I'm planning to get the 11" High-end model, not too sure i5 or i7, any advice?

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm meaning the graphics performance.

Watch AnandTech's video review of the Apple Thunderbolt Display. He connects it to a MacBook Air. He said a few animations are a little sluggish, but for the most part it works very well.
