Hello, I have not used Thunderbolt before. With Thunderbolt 3 /UCB-C, can external SSD be faster or even as fast as the internal one that came with the MBP 2017? Will having an external TS3+ in between the MBP and the external SSD slow things down? What products do you recommend? Also, can such external SSD be used as a boot drive? For example, I install Windows and/or Linux on the external SSD and boot to any of these OS from the external drive.
