Hi, I am considering the Apple Cinema Display with the thunderbolt port. My uses would be primarily writing, Xcode, and of course routine web, email and so on. My Xcode is primary in house scientific applications and data analysis. I have a Samsung 24 inch display is fine for these tasks. But I carry my retina MacBook Pro daily with me to the office, and use my Samsung at home. It would be really nice to come home and just plug in my MacBook Pro to thunderbolt port and power from monitor and be good to go. Is there is any down side to thunderbolt port??? I would really primary be doing this for convenience. I would run Ethernet, USB hard drive back up and maybe an external DVD drive. As always thanks.
