Compare Thunderbolt to Mini DisplayPort

Thunderbolt replaced the Mini DisplayPort (MDP) on Apple laptops, but both have same number of pins. My question is what MDP features were sacrificed to support Thunderbolt connectivity? Were there just some PINs that were not used on MDP and Thunderbolt took advantage of this?

I've looked at various sites on-line and couldn't find an answer. Does iFixIt.com have a tear down of both connectors side-by-side?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Anyone know how to easily convert from HTML to iFixIt.com wiki syntax?

Anyone know how to embed images/tables into this response?

New ASUS motherboards come with Thunderbolt ports. This is the future it seems.
