Thinking of getting one of these for my 2013 i7/8gb/512gb MBA while they are still available but not quite clear on a couple details. Anyone here using one of these? The USB ports are 2.0 but I need to use USB 3.0 disks with my MBA. Do you need to connect the Thunderbolt Display to a USB port on the MBA for everything to work properly? My old Cinema Display uses the USB connection to support the brightness buttons, for example. If I do plug the TBD USB connector into the right side of my MBA, will I still be able to use a USB 3.0 disk at full speed on the MBA''s left port, or would the TBD slow both of my MBA's ports down to 2.0 speed? I think the power cord is the old style MagSafe, isn't it? So I'd need an adapter to use that with my MBA? My understanding is that you can plug a second Thunderbolt Display into the pass-through port, but a regular DVI monitor with and adapter won't work. I have read, however, that if I plug a thunderbolt disk into the TBD port, then plug the DVI display into the disk, it will be recongnized as an additional monitor. Can anyone confirm this? And does my 2013 i7 8gb (Intel HD Graphics 5000/1024mb) MBA have the "chops" to drive it acceptably? One attraction of the TBD is that I could plug my Sony DVCAM/HDV deck into its firewire port. The deck drives a monitor so that would give me two external monitors in Final Cut Pro, along with the built-in screen. Currently I use a thunderbolt to firewire adapter and am limited to only one external screen (the one attached to the deck).
