Thunderbolt Display gets 2- to 4-week shipping time

updated 11:40 am EDT, Thu August 18, 2011

Deliveries still not due until late September

Apple has identified a narrower shipping timeframe for the Thunderbolt Display, a check of the company's online store shows. The monitor is now listed as shipping in two to four weeks. When it was originally announced in late July, the peripheral was only slated to launch sometime within 60 days.

The Thunderbolt Display is a 27-inch IPS LCD, essentially an evolution of the existing Cinema Display. Because it is designed around Thunderbolt though, it can run video alongside data from integrated FireWire, Ethernet and USB ports using a single cable. To actually make use of these extra ports, though, requires a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac. A MagSafe power connector is included for MacBook users.

    Thunderbolt display and Mac mini

    That's good news. It's the first Apple display I've found appealing in many years. Apple should think smart and create its natural complement, barebones Mac minis (no RAM or HD) sold through third-party resellers such as OWC. The two would go beautifully together and, in my case, I'd save enough configuring the high-end Mac mini I want, that I could afford this display. Everyone would be happy.
