It will work:
To learn more about Thunderbolt (TB) and its compatibility with Mini DisplayPort (MDP):
Thank goodness!! It looks different to in the pic and thought this new thunderbolt on the newer MacBooks were changed completely!! TVM
So I am right by saying its not the lead that will need to be a thunderbolt to make it perform, its actually the thunderbolt in the computer? In other words the lead I purchased above, will this give thunderbolt performance?
Poor Quality Snaps
But see the attached images of my Thunderbolt cable....Pretty sure they are the same
"Poor Quality Snap"
Thats as useless as a chocolate fireguard! lol

And as visible from the link I posted, Thunderbolt uses the same form as the Mini DisplayPort, thus one can use MDP via Thunderbolt.
Cable to connect VGA video to new Retina Macbook Pro 13" Thunderbolt
I replaced my mid 2009 macbook pro 13" with the shiny new Macbook pro 13" retina display. I thought the cable I had needed to be replaced, but looking again at the apple site, it appears the cable didn't change.
Yes, Thunderbolt is Mini-Displayport + Extra data channels. You can use Mini-Displayport cables in a Thunderbolt port.

Thanks, what it was looking for.
Thunderbolt is mini-displayport + pcie. It can be one or the other, using the same port.
