Hi, Looks like I will have to get the Thunderbolt Display TBD now rather than wait for the new release in Dec (or later). I have the rMBP 15" with the Thunderbolt ports. My eyes are accustomed to the sharpness of rMBP, in terms of browsing, word processing.  How is the viewing experience comparing between the rMBP 15" vs the TBD ? Will the experience be better in TBD ?  Currently I have an external LCD 1920x720 connected to rMBP. When I close the lid of rMBP, the external LCD shutdown too. I have seen others using their lid-shut rMBP(with ext keybrd/mouse) with external LCD. How do they do this ? Any advice appreciated. Rgds.
