Is this monitor dimensions the exact same as an iMac 27" and can you use it as a second monitor using thunderbolt in the Maverick OS?

    Although the screen dimensions of the Thunderbolt display and the iMac are the same (27"), when sat side by side on the desk the thunderbolt display is about 25mm lower down. I have put a couple of books under it as a temporary measure until i can find a more permeant solution. One thing you will notice is that the thunderbolt display is very glossy and reflects much more than the iMac screen.

    The monitor connects perfectly to the iMac, and more importantly for me was the colour accuracy between the two is identical.

  • Actually this would just act as a second screen if you were to connect it to to a already existent computer. Yes this monitor is 27" as well. Yes it can be connected with a thunderbolt cable.
