  1. It would be nice if thier thunderbolt pci expansion slot wpuld cost less than building a new pc just for a capture card or video card then transfer video to my Mac for editing

  2. It’s about time we started getting consumer Thunderbolt drives “the rest of us” can afford so we can start using that empty port on the side of our macs.

    Now, how about a Thunderbolt doc to use with internal drives?

      1. Thanks for the suggestion.
        They call that a doc, but that is actually more like an HD housing with optical drive for a whooping $500.

        I was talking something more like:
        NewerTech Voyager Q Quad Interface Dock for 2.5″ and 3.5″ Serial ATA Drives

    1. And it’s sad that it would be cheaper to build a bare bones PC with an extra sata cable and power coming out and have your Mac access it through Ethernet than buy their drives

  3. … that the Backup drive was not connected to her brand-new iMac. “Is it WiFi?” No … oops!
    So I had to go out and get a) a Thunderbolt/FireWire (800) converter and b) a FireWire (800) cable – cuz all I had were FireWire *400* cables.
    Thank you Apple, thanks a pants-load.
