    I have a nMP on order from Apple, should be arriving in the coming week or so. I'll being using two screens with it, the main one will be an Apple Thunderbolt Display, second is an LG screen, both on monitor arms. The setup of a new desk i'm purchasing this weekend will have my TB display far enough away from the Mac Pro that the TB cord that is attached to the screen can't reach it. So i just plan on buying an Apple TB 2.0 M cable to connect from Mac Pro to the spare TB port on the back of the display.

    Now i have Amazon Prime, so i planned on just purchasing it through them (slightly cheaper and no tax :D), just noticed some interesting text in the description. I'm assuming they're referring to the older Mac Pro and not the new version right? Just want to make sure before i purchase this.

    Just bought the same cable :)

    They mean "old Mac Pro" is not compatible.

    It's a normal TB cable, I use it with a MBP no problems.

    UNLESS there is any difference on the nMP "TB-2" connection ??

    I don't think so but perhaps you could just google that and confirm before
    you pay ??

    Regards,

    Marty.

    Googled it before and couldn't find anything solid. Asked a friend with a similar setup, guess Amazon is referring to the old Mac Pro. Just slightly confusing.

    Thanks!
