10Apple Thunderbolt Display Monitor

We think this massive, high-resolution, LED-backlit display with 2560×1440 pixels provides a brilliant viewing experience. It comes with six ports: 3 USB 2.0, FireWire 800 port, Gigabit Ethernet port, and Thunderbolt port. The Thunderbolt also includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook or MacBook Air at the drop of a hat. We really liked that you can also stay in touch with friends and family easily using the FaceTime HD camera and built-in high-quality sound. The features are pretty incredible, but the price comes at a premium so we kept this beauty at number 10.
