Hi I have already read some posts about this but just wanted to clarify a few things:

 

To connect my Mac Air (brought in 2012)

 

1. I need a Thunderbolt Cable?

2. Can I buy any LCD apple screen? even if it is second hand?

3. Can I buy a package with a Keyboard and LCD?

4. Is a second hand keyboard OK also?

5. Does the Keyboard plug into the screen or do I need to buy another cord to plug into the Air?

 

 

Thanks

    1. I need a Thunderbolt Cable?

     

    No.  Apple Displays come with a cable attached.

     

     

    2. Can I buy any LCD apple screen? even if it is second hand?

     

    Yes.  Almost any display will work (with the correct adapter).

     

    3. Can I buy a package with a Keyboard and LCD?

     

    No.

     

    4. Is a second hand keyboard OK also?

     

    Yes if it uses USB or Bluetooth and has the Apple key positions.

     

    5. Does the Keyboard plug into the screen or do I need to buy another cord to plug into the Air?

     

    Apple displays have USB ports that can be used for keyboards
