    Okay I did not believe this at first.

    It seems that Apple has taken a huge step backwards with the 2011 iMacs.

    Another user has reported this.

    I for one use Target mode alot with my current setup, MBA, 2010 MBP and a PC with miniDP out. Now your need a TB connection to TB connection. So nothing other then a new MBP can be plugged into an iMac.

    Does anyone else use Target mode currently or rely on it? For me this is a huge stepbackwards and means I will not be buying a iMac in the future unless I upgrade all my other mac laptops and can find a PC card that supports TB. Very disapointed when apple pulls this crap. I love the Target mode feature on my current iMac, its a huge selling point.

    As TB uses different wiring than MDP, that is the way it is. It is more of an hardware issue, maybe someone will bring out adapter for MDP>TB one day.
