    Can you use Apple Thunderbolt Display (27") as a TV?

    Or am I better off getting a TV and use it as a monitor?

    Not interested in buying two separate units...

    In an ethereal plane of existence.
    In theory, yes, but in reality, no. There are no cable boxes or DVD players or anything that you'd hook up to a TV that supports thunderbolt. If you mean to keep it plugged into a Mac and use it as a screen for netflix or something, then sure.

    Nope, has to be connected to a mac with thunderbolt, no third party products can convert a video stream to a thunderbolt capable output as of yet.
