27-inch LED Cinema Display compatible w/ Thunderbolt port?

I am looking to get a newer Mac with a thunderbolt connection, so question is will my 27-inch LED Cinema Display (Mini DisplayPort) work with them? Do I need converters....

Did you check the Apple site?: http://www.apple.com/thunderbolt/

Thunderbolt I/O technology provides native support for the Apple Thunderbolt Display and Mini DisplayPort displays. It also supports DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, and VGA displays through the use of existing adapters. So you can connect your Apple LED Cinema Display or other display, along with multiple high-speed devices, all from a single port.

All-right that was a bit cryptic, I won't then need a converter?

It's not cryptic. It's quite clear. "Native support" means no adapters.
