[Marcus Moore] "[Chris Murphy] "I agree that the PCIe expansion chassis is not elegant. "

Absolutely. "

Let's back up a minute here.

What about PCIe, in general, being 'inelegant'?

Working on anything PCIe is a jammed up mess. You are cramming stuff into a really heavy computer, you are putting together little tiny connectors in the back of an already crowded computer, usually in to a recessed cavity. Thunderbolt, at the very least, allows you to place those components where it is most convenient, and allows you to take anything apart and remove something without disassembling or moving a big heavy box, which in turn, allows you to keep working even when one PCIe extension isn't available.

What you see as a negative, I actually see as a positive, but then again I have more than one machine to attend to.
