And even this device isn't going to be in the average Apple computer owners home...due to the steep $999 price tag.
Well by "more expandable", I meant in comparison to an SGI workstation.

The average user simply has no real need for Thunderbolt. But the new Mac Pro isn't for the average user either. If professionals really do take to the new Mac Pro, then I'd expect more TB peripherals to follow. I think there are enough options now to get what they need using TB now.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
