[Craig Seeman] "As far as the peripheral makers go, only devices I'd consider "pro" are coming out for Thunderbolt such as Video I/O and high speed storage which would be needed in fast file access. There's currently not much motive for most consumer to use Thunderbolt (although that may change at some point).

How about Apple's own monitor that is both Hub and monitor? Belkin's announced hub? Sonnet's PC card adapter? Seagate's GoFlex adapter, Western Digital's Thunderbolt MyBook drive, LaCie's eSata adapter?

Very acceptable versions of the Pro devices you refer to are also available in either USB3 or PC Card. Does that make USB3 a pro only option?

Frankly, I would have been far happier if Apple had embraced eSATA and USB3. I could have been using them for years now, instead of just finally getting into TBolt because there are finally ALMOST enough devices to justify it.
