I saw this article and I just had to laugh. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Thunderbolt-usb-3.0-Z77-Ivy-Bridge,15445.html Thunderbolt laptops have been out for a year? by the end of this year, over a year and a half? and they want a staggering 100 peripherals - wow talk about thinking big lol. You could probably walk into a major city and buy 100 USB 3.0 devices off the shelf I think thunderbolt has its place and its great for the high end stuff but its never going to break into mainstream until it starts to being out 'normal' peripherals... Thunderbolt 2.5" caddies Thunderbolt to Gigabit adapters etc. These would fly off the shelfs if sensibly priced.
