Here's some potentially good news for those who've been hoping for a redesign of Apple's Thunderbolt Display - but not for folks who're trying to get their mitts on the current model. Apple Insider reports that retails including Amazon, J&R and MacMall are all out of stock of the 27-inch display, and such shortages typically herald the impending introduction of a new model.

The most likely scenario has Apple launching a new Thunderbolt Display utilizing the same design and technology as the newest 27-inch iMac. Such a display would feature front glass laminated to the LCD panel itself for a similar reduction in glare and a much thinner profile.

It would make sense for a refreshed Thunderbolt Display to feature a MagSafe 2 power connector and to omit the current model's Firewire ports, so as to be up-to-date with the current MacBook Pro lineup. However, there would certainly be those who'd miss the latter feature, if removed. How would you redesign the current Thunderbolt Display? Let's hear your ideas in the comments.
