Beloved technology pundit Andy Ihnatko spoke with Apple about the Thunderbolt ports in the new iMacs released today and tweeted that they “are indeed 2 separate data channels. Each supports 6 devices (including) a screen.”
This means you’ll be able to slap TWO more 27-inch LED Cinema Displays onto your dual-Thunderbolt iMac for hot triple screen action. You can daisy-chain up to a total of 12 forthcoming Thunderbolt devices such as RAID drives from Promise and video editing equipment from Matrox.
This is a very compelling reason to opt for the 27-inch model to ensure maximum expandability.
