Apple Apple has updated its line of iMac desktops, with new processors and bumped graphical specifications. They also includes an HD FaceTime camera, which is certainly useful. The most interesting feature is, of course, that they include Thunderbolt ports - one on the 21.5" model, and two on the 27" model.

Using DisplayPort as input device?

I didn't see in the spec the support for using the DisplayPort as input device (to connect the output of another DP device to the the iMac and use it as an external monitor). The previous 27" model has that capability? Did they removed that feature? or is it included in the thunderbolt thing?

Yup I believe the Thunderbolt is Displayport+USB3 rolled into one, and two ways at the same time (?)
