    I have the chance to get a nice used Thunderbolt display... does anyone use one of these with their 12 inch Macbook? Will it even work? I can't find anything online except where it talks about adapters and so on (which I don't mind getting) but will it even work, and if anyone uses the larger display with your Macbook, do you notice any lag or issues?

    Thanks!

    I believe the Thunderbolt Display cannot be used but the older Cinema Display can with the appropriate adapters.

    Thanks EugW! I got your reply in my other thread, and ordered the adapter, now that i realize my "Thunderbolt display" is actually a cinema display. Thanks for the info!
