    I have had this Cinema for less than a year and wanted to know if I should sell it for a Thunderbolt or keep it? I am ordering a new 27" Imac in the next month and was going to use it as a 2nd display. What do you guys think?

    I would personally prefer the ACD over the TBD as the port replicators on the TBD are not offering full performance i i wouldn't use them anyways. Also, you would lose the ability to connect your screen to a non thunderbolt computer.

    You should sell the Cinema Display and buy Two TBD and a mac mini.

    I don't really see the benefits of TBD with an iMac. You don't need the port replication, and unless you need to daisy a 3rd display itt's not really buying you anything.
