    I don't mean just as a display for what's on the computer itself, or displaying what's on another Mac... I want to use this beautiful 27" screen as a display for other devices... and I mean ANY other devices.

    For example, how would I go about connecting a Blu-Ray player that has an HDMI output? Or what about connecting another computer that has DVI or mini-DVI output?

    EDIT: For that matter... is there ANYTHING I can use these two Thunderbolt ports for outside of hooking up an external hard drive or connecting to other macs and/or displays?

    No need to make a thread on this. The answer is simple:

    You can connect some Apple devices to it right now. The end. Nothing else works at this time.

    I'd made this thread before I posted in the other one.

    Sad answer though... I guess I'll just have to sit and wait for now. :(
