“With the recently updated iMac and MacBook pro lines receiving Thunderbolt updates, nearly half of Apple’s Mac fleet has now made the transition to the new technology,” Mark Reschke writes for T-GAAP.
“The next Mac on the update roadmap is the Mac mini,” Reschke writes. “But regardless of which Mac is next, Thunderbolt is an absolute game changer, and here’s why:”
1. Thunderbolt is a quantum leap in throughput.
2. Thunderbolt is going to drive demand of SSD external storage.
3. Devices are going to quickly adopt Thunderbolt.
4. One cable, one pipe, one chain.
Reschke writes, “Oh, one more thing. Intel’s developed Thunderbolt and is supporting the technology in all of their forthcoming designs, but has very little motivation to support USB 3.0. Any questions? Didn’t think so. You’re so going to want this.”
