I currently have a work-at-home setup with a MacBook Pro Retina 2012 and two Apple Thunderbolt Displays. I want to leverage the monitor investment and acquire a gaming system. My strategy is to acquire the Asus G750JZ-XS72 and in different places I have read confirmations that:

(A) It works with the Apple Thunderbolt Display
(B) It supports daisy chain of two such displays
(C) It supports clamshell operation (shut lid) and will wake up based on mouse/kbd.
(D) and I've read that the gigabit Ethernet port in the Thunderbolt Display is also recognized and works.

I don't know if the display webcam or audio is usable. I don't know if there are any latency issues regarding the graphics. In other words, does this laptop's Nvidia 880M drive external displays connected by a Thunderbolt well--with the performance that would be provided from say HDMI?

I figure there has got to be some folks in this forum with G750s with Thunderbolt Displays available.

Will the Thunderbolt displays work normally like normal displays (different resolutions available, etc.)?

Will I be able to access the audio output functionality of the thunderbolt displays? (volume control).

Will I run into HDCP issues?
