LaCie eSata to Thunderbolt

Belkin USB2, Firewire 800, HDMI to Thunderbolt.

Sonnet Express Cart to Thunderbolt

The only thing I'm not seeing on the way is USB3 to Thunderbolt. One can speculate why not.

Although it's been alluded to, the advantage of Thunderbolt is that, unlike PCIe cards, such devices will be able to move from desktop (once implemented) to portable device right on down to the MacBook Air and, soon, Acer and Lenovo laptops as well. Unless you're a "Pro" that has no use for portable computing, this is a major breakthrough in convenience. When you consider Magma Expansion chassis, even certain PCIe cards become portable as well as cross platform. Granted there are PCIe needs such as 16x GPUs which really are dedicated to workstations given Thunderbolt limitations but just because there's some exceptions, doesn't make this a major PROFESSIONAL improvement.

One might edit on a MacBook Air, they are now viable for use in the field if you need to cut together a few shots to show a client in the field during a shoot.
