    Yes I know how that feel man, suck big time .. 2 Thunderbolt port which has identical form with MDP, you can plug it on Kanex, and pooof nothing happens. No Xbox screens or whatsoever on target display mode

    Since the new TB port only support device with Thunderbolt capabilities, a.k.a no HDMI input unless your PS3/Xbox suddenly support Thunderbolt

    Yeah that's why don't ever buy 3rd party accesories for your :apple: . They can lock it whenever they want. Suddenly the "Compatible with Mac" on your acc packaging doesn't mean a thing anymore

    So what you're gonna do? You want to game a lot on iMac? I think 6970M is awesome GPU, just no Uncharted, Halo or bluray player gonna displayed on imac screen .. such a waste

    That is actually a very good point you've brought up. The main interest I have with Thunderbolt is is there will be any AV I/O devices.

    Still this is what happens when ultra new technology has been introduced without much support of devices, I can remember the same when USB was introduced...
