    Yes. And if you're in the market for a monitor, make sure you get one that can achieve its full resolution over HDMI. Some monitors that have both DisplayPort and HDMI will support their full resolution on DP while only going to 1080p on HDMI.

    There is no Apple Cinema display with HDMI, you can use an older Apple display but it would be costly to as you would need special cables and adapters. The thunderbolt display will not work, the best options is to get a NON Apple display that can support your desired resolution over HDMI.

    These are two of the better HDMI monitors you can get.

    Or you could plug an Apple TV into your external display.
