    I'm looking to buy some older Apple Displays.

    EIther the 24" LED Cinema Display.

    Or the 23" Apple Cinema Display (silver one).

    Will I be able to get these to work with the newer Macs, I guess with Thunderbolt display adapters?

    Many Thanks,

    24" LED will work out of the box, as it uses MiniDisplayPort which is still pin-compatible with Thunderbolt.

    23" ACD will work with an MDP-DVI adapter that Apple sell, or third parties.
