Wanted: Cinema Display dead or alive

Posted on by Mike Evans


Last week's optimistic reports of the imminent death of the ageing Thunderbolt Cinema Display turn out to be exaggerated. Sadly. As I have mentioned repeatedly, the current display with its USB 2.0 ports and ample girth is well past its shelf life. We live in hope of a USB3.0-equipped display in slimline iMac format and, with luck, featuring a higher resolution screen. Last week we heard that stocks of the old display were drying up, something that often presages an update. I just checked, hoping to find something new, but was disappointed to find the old display is back in business. I desperately need a new Cinema Display but I refuse to pay £899 for a device that is sure to be out of date within months.
