    In january I will get my new Imac with thunderbolt.
    What do I need to be able to watch HD preview on FCPX?
    Can it be done with the Apple Thunderbolt display?
    Do I need something in-between?
    If yes, will a Led TV work?

    You "should" be able to just use a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable to your LED HDTV, if you are not planning on buying a "true" video monitor (which cost $$$$).

    If you want to buy a "true" video monitor with SDI connections, then you would need a thunderbolt video box such as those from BlackMagic Design or other high end video gear manufacturers.
