(I was yelled at for not starting my own here goes.)


I have a brand new MBP with Thunderbolt.  Work just bought me a 27' Thunderbolt display.  Great so far.  I also have a high-end Dell laptop.  I want to connect the DVI out on my work Dell base station to my Thunderbolt display.  I have a mini-display port to DVI adaptor.  Plugged that into my MBP Thunderbolt display and got the second monitor up on from my MBP.  Now when the new Thunderbolt monitor gets here, I am really hoping that I will be able to reverse the flow and connect from the DVI out of my Dell base station, to the DVI-mini-diplayport and into the back Thunderbolt port and then display the image on the Thunderbolt display.


Can anyone confirm??
