    Does anyone know when Apple will add Thunderbolt to the new Airport Extreme?

    Why would they? The AE and TC are designed for backups. They aren't designed to be a high-speed NAS. USB 2 and eventually USB 3 are fast enough and much cheaper.

    If you want network connected storage that's pretty fast, choose something else.

    What benefit are you anticipating that Thunderbolt would bring to the AE?
