Thunderbolt port to mini-Displayport via Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable

Will a Thunderbolt cable connect a 2012 MacbookPro (with a Thunderbolt port) to a late-2009 iMac (with a miniDisplay port) and operate in target mode? What about audio signal as well as video?

  • Yes, it will. I have exactly that configuration and the late 2009 iMac works in target mode with my MacBook Pro retina (MacBookPro10,1)

  • Best Answer:

    All you need is a mini-Displayport to mini-Displayport cable. Skip this upscale Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable. You'll find mini-Displayport to mini-Displayport cables much cheaper in other retailers.
