I have google searched this and it seems that some sites say yes it is and some sites say no it isn't. I have an Asus G751JY with thunderbolt and was under the impression that the thunderbolt port had nothing to do with an external display. My question is can I plus in an external display with thunderbolt? I realize this is a super n00b question and here I am asking it.

Thanks OCN!

Yes, you can. I run 2 external monitors of a MacBook Pro's 2 Thunderbolt ports.

IIRC, the connectors are the same and it's the protocol that is very slightly different.

Thunderbolt ports double as a Mini DisplayPort. They can be used as a Mini DisplayPort if you want, and will accept any standard mDP cable.
