    Hi all,

    I was just wondering as I am currently looking for a new monitor for my MacBook Pro. At the moment I use a 24" screen that is perfect and I was just wondering that if I brought an apple thunderbolt display that has the extra thunderbolt plug on the back would I be able to link it up to the 24" I have now or a 28" I have downstairs so that I have the 2 monitors?

    Thanks a lot

    However, at the bottom of the FAQ:
    So MBP-->Thunderbolt Display-->Thunderbolt HDD-->miniDP Monitor,
    might work.
    I want to know as well..

    AnandTech tested this with a 27" Cinema display at the end of the daisy chain, with a Pegasus TB in between, and it worked.
    However, on AppleInsider, the last display being a projector didn't work.
