    Im thinking of getting the base 21.5 model and am wondering will there be anyway of connecting an external monitor AND some thunderbolt devices at the same time ?

    Since i'll be using the thunderbird as a mini display port how would I connect additional devices ? Is there some sort of hub being developed ?


    Thanks

    You can daisychain them

    Connect the drive to the comptuer and then connect the display to the drive. You can chain up to 6 devices.

    You connect the other device first then the monitor to the second thunderbolt port on the back of the other device.

    ok, i didn't realize a mini display port could be added to the chain.

    Thanks :)
