I just bought my first Mac, er, actually, my first Mac since '85 to be precise. Avid windows user and won't be going "native" anytime soon. Bought the rMBP with 16gb and 512gb so I can run VMWare Fusion and run my virtualized windows PCs on well designed, powerful hardware. (no idea whether I'll like and/or use Mac OSX in my daily life or if I'll just use the VMs) To my question preambles: I understand that the rMBP uses a new power connector that is different than the one used by the big 27" thunderbolt display's provided laptop charging cord. I read numerous reviews about the Thunderbolt display that reported lots of problems with windows and with OSX regarding waking from sleep and other such nonsense. The most negative reviews are fairly old, at least 1 year. Now the questions: 1. Is the Thunderbolt display on target for a refresh anytime soon based on predictable launches of products? 2. Is the current Thunderbolt display now stable with bugs worked out, or are the same known issues from older reviews still present? (e.g. firmware updates?) 3. Do you believe the next Thunderbolt display that comes along will have the updated power charging magsafe 2 pinout as the rMBP? Thanks for your patience answering a lot of questions from someone new to the world of Mac.
