    Does anyone make a thunderbolt hub with more than two thunderbolt inputs? I have a MBA and realized it would be nice to use my old ACD and just use one cable to plug in all my peripherals. Thats the benefit of thunderbolt (right?) Anyway I picked up a Seagate GoFlex Drive and thunderbolt to ethernet adapter. Still waiting for the thunderbolt to firewire adapter. I then realize that daisy chaining does not allow me to connect my ACD and the ethernet adapter. Forget about ever using the firewire adapter. I understand the Thunderbolt display will solve this, however, I am not going to drop $1000 on a new display. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Matrox introduced a docking station product just a few weeks ago called DS1. It is the one-cable convenience you are looking for! It should be available in september.

    Go check http://www.matrox.com/docking_station/en/ds1/ for the full rundown.
