Hello,

I want to buy a network adapter for my Windows 7 machine. I found an apple network adapter from my friend and he says that he is not sure whether it will work or not. So anybody knows about this please help me.

Thank you.

Hi Kelseyy!
 
It is plausible for a Windows 7 machine to detect the Apple network adapter.
 
The Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is designed specifically for Apple Machines which have Thunderbolt ports. Not all Windows based machines have a Thunderbolt port incorporated in their hardware.
 
The only non-Apple machines that have a Thunderbolt port are the Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook and Lenovo ThinkPad Edge S430; both laptops are relatively new. If your machine is one of these laptops, you can try the network adapter yourself.
