    It was introduced around the same time as the UniBody MacBooks and was pretty much designed for them*

    *amongst other products, I know!

    The 3-in-one comprises of one of each of the following connectors:

    Magsafe - to Power/Charge your MB.

    USB - runs the built-in USB hub. Also, I think it carries the Audio and iSight signals.

    Mini DisplayPort - Connects to compatible Apple gear to drive the display.

    So the 24" Apple Cinema Display is only compatible with Apple Products including but not limited to your UniBody MacBook.
