    What is the output on the new MBA the only one that I can see is thunderbolt?

    There don't seem to be any thunder bolt adapters for the various inputs on a monitor?

    You can use MDP to DVI/VGA/HDMI adapters.

    The Thunderbolt port is shaped like the Mini DisplayPort, thus you can use the TB port to connect MDP devices to it, as the signal is the same.
