Hi Guys,

I just bought a Dell IPS monitor yesterday and connected it to my 2009 MBP with DIsplay Port to Mini Display Port.

I am looking at upgrading to a new 13" MBP today and see that they have a thunderbolt port, is this the same? Will my new Dell monitor clip into this?

Thanks.

Yes, Thunderbolt is compatible with Mini DisplayPort.

To learn more about Thunderbolt (TB) and its compatibility with Mini DisplayPort (MDP):
And because Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, the video standard for high-resolution displays, any Mini DisplayPort display plugs right into the Thunderbolt port. To connect a DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, or VGA display, just use an existing adapter.
