Help! I currently use a maxed out mid-2009 17" MacBook Pro and I need more screen space for the work I am doing. My problem is that it is logical to go with the Thunderbolt display (for future use) but I cannot use the MBP with it. If I get the non-Thunderbolt display, then when I upgrade the MacBook (sometime in 2012) I have a non-compatable display. This really irks me... and I don't want to go down the iMac route. Any ideas??? Thanks guys!!!
