    Would I need to buy a new Macbook Pro in order to use Thunderbolt 2?
    For example say if Apple release a Thunderbolt 2 monitor; would I be able to use that on my Thunderbolt 1 mbp?

    Or would Apple make an adapter available?

    Thanks.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but TB2 is backwards compatible with TB1 and MDP.

    So if Apple did release a Thunderbolt 2 monitor, I'd be able to use with an early 2013 rMBP and a mid 2012 cMBP?

    I woul expect thunderbolt 2 to be backwards compatible with thunderbolt 1, just like usb 3.0 is compatible with usb 2.0.
