I'm planning on making some changes to how I use my Mac at home, and need some help with a question I have with the Thunderbolt display.
My plan is to sell my iMac, buy a Thunderbolt display, and use that with a Mac Mini I have. For the sake of making my desk look neat and tidy, I'm going to mount the Mac Mini underneath the desk using one of these nifty mounts:
The thing is, I'm going to also want to use the display to plug into my Macbook Pro for when I work from home, so ideally would like to keep the Thunderbolt & Power cable that's "built-in" to the display on the top of the desk, so that I don't have to pull cables from below the desk to above when I want to plug in the Macbook.
So, the question is, can I plug the Mac Mini into the Thunderbolt port, that is on the Thunderbolt display and have that work, or do I have to plug the Thunderbolt cable into the Mac Mini?
