My TB mini has 2 Cinema Displays. I want to swap one of them for a TB Display. Will the TB display work OK side-by-side with a Cinema display?

    As long as you plug the Thunderbolt display in first, it should work fine. Thunderbolt is a dual-purpose port, so it runs Mini DisplayPort without a problem, on your Mac Mini or on a Thunderbolt display. Just know that the Cinema Display would be the end of your Thunderbolt chain, as the Cinema Display doesn't support it (I wouldn't normally add that, but I've seen a few people ask that lately).
