    Hey MacRumors.

    I am thinking about buying a older Apple A1267 and connecting it to my Mac Mini MC815LL/A.
    But I cannot really figure if it is a possible connection?

    What I know, is that the Apple A1267 is an older monitor have a Mini Displayport - and the newer mac Mini MC815LL/A have a Thunderbolt port.

    So is it possible to connect the two things, and if it is - how? :)

    Sorry for my english, I hope you get the point :)

    Thunderbolt is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort, thus you can simply use the Thunderbolt port to connect a display using a Mini DisplayPort plug.

    To learn more about Thunderbolt (TB) and its compatibility with Mini DisplayPort (MDP):
