    Well, I know that it's compatible, but I want to know if brightness control will work. For example, say if I press the brightness controls on the MacBook or on an Apple keyboard that's hooked up to it, will it control the brightness on the display itself?

    It will only control the brightness of the internal display, but the ACD has brightness controls on the right of the frame.

    Although I could be wrong.

    What about if I have it in clamshell mode with an apple keyboard hooked up? Will it then control the brightness of the ACD?

    I know there are brightness controls on the side I was just curious because it's easier to do it from the keyboard.

    Yes, if you have an external keyboard and ACD hooked up it will control the brightness

    The brightness controls on the keyboard will work just fine. They're actually controlled via USB, so its compatible with every Mac. I've used it on a unibody MB, MacBook Air, Mac mini, and soon a 13" MBP. They've all been fully compatible and work perfectly.
