    Built material, ports, panel. If you want a monitor of the same quality, you will pay the same, or even more.


    PS: They are APPLE monitors, as Apple is the company selling them, "Mac" is short for their computers.

    No. For a computer to run a Thunderbolt display, it needs to have a Thunderbolt port. An MDP Mac cannot run a Thunderbolt display. It just won't work. And that cable cannot connect a DVI computer to an ATD. It only connects MDP computers to DVI displays. Just because the MDP and Thunderbolt ports have the same shape, it does not mean you can use them interchangeably.
