The new I/O solution 'Thunderbolt' that is part of the just announced MBPs looks very interesting. Has anyone got any info on it or any idea if drive manufacturers are planning to support it? As it purports to be 4 times the speed of eSata, it really could be a leap ahead for HD and 4K work. I fear, however, that it will remain an Apple-only solution that will die swiftly. Thoughts?
