    I remember the joy when it was announced that the previous Macbook Pro's (2010) Mini-display port now was able to output audio as well via an adapter to HDMI.

    Is this supported by the new iMacs (mid 2011)? There is no mention of those models on the support-page above.

    Also, where is the mini-display port located on the iMac? Is it the same port as the thunderbolt-port?

    Even the 2010 iMacs supported audio via MDP, and the MDP port is the same as Thunderbolt.

    Yes, but does the NEW mid 2011 iMac support audio via MDP? Considering the MDP has been remade to a thunderbolt-MDP-hybrid thingy, and considering Apple's supportpage regarding this issue does not list that model (the page was updated 6th of may whereas the iMac was released three days earlier), it is a valid question that warrants clarification IMHO.
