Hey guys, I want to downsize from my iMac to a MBAir. However, with Thunderbolt just released, I can only imagine that this is going to make it's way to the MBAir in the next revision.

Due to the limited size within the MBAir, is Thunderbolt a possibile addition? I would buy one tomorrow if I knew that that wasn't coming until a few revisions down the road. But the consumerwhomusthavethelatesttecheventhoughhemightnotuseit in me screams to wait for Thunderbolt.

Thoughts?

Since it uses the same form factor as the MiniDisplay Port and the MBA already has a MiniDisplay port, logic would indicate that the MBAs will get Thunderbolt at some point in the future.

Not necessarily, the Thunderbolt chip on the logic board is fairly large. So it isn't just that it replaces the same size mini display port as currently on the MBA.
