Can this VGA adapter connect my new macbook pro to a projector via thunderbolt?

The new released macbook pro don't have the usual mini displayport but only have thunderbolt. I have purchased one VGA adapter for my old macbook pro 2010, and it worked fine. However, since I changed to the new macbook pro 2012, the VGA adapter stopped functioning if I connected the projector via the thunderbolt. I wonder what kind of adapter I need to connect a projector to my new macbook pro.

  • Yes. You can use a Thunderbolt port as a Mini DisplayPort, but you can't use a Mini DisplayPort as a Thunderbolt. Yes, it will work.
