New iMac details: free Trackpad swap, ext. display support

updated 12:15 pm EDT, Tue May 3, 2011

Thunderbolt ports allow two extra monitors

Two subtler changes with the 2011 iMac have been observed, according to reports. When ordering the new computer, a person can now choose to swap out the default Magic Mouse for a Magic Trackpad at no extra cost. Previously the only way get a Trackpad as part of an iMac order was to pay an extra $69.

The actual design of the computer now permits expanded display options. Because twin Thunderbolt ports are present on the back, the system should allow for up to two additional monitors, Apple is said to have confirmed. This does however require that each monitor be connected using a Mini DisplayPort adapter, and there no longer appears to be any support for Mini DisplayPort input. Rebalancing positives and negatives somewhat is the ability to daisy-chain Thunderbolt devices.
