Shown is the Cinema display. Will the Thunderbolt display work as well? Don't you need the notebook open for Thunderbolt?

I was told the MBP would need to be open slightly to use it w/Thunderbolt.

    No. You can use the Thunderbolt display with the MacBook closed. When you close it, the display automatically becomes your primary display.
