Yea, but that would be used in a desktop, which is always standing in the same place there. The external drive would stay always there, behind the iMac.
Obviously, that would be risky for a laptop, since you're always bringing it with you to places and putting it into different locations.
Anyway, it's too sad there isn't any adapter/cable yet.
TB has been launched almost 1 year ago.
Ikr and i have been waiting for an esata>tb adapter and it hasn't happened either, so i guess its back to the waiting game.

After all ... who wouldn't want.
a TB --> SATA6 adapter
a TB --> USB3 adapter
a TB --> PCIe box that would have room for 1 or 2 cards
a TB --> Gigabit Ethernet adapter
Also 'docks' that would contain one, two, three or more of any/all of the above listed items. The cost of the TB support chips (sold by Intel) will be a major factor in who may or may not step up to the plate to provide this stuff and/or at what cost.
Oh God... I want all of them.
Low latency and insane bandwidth inside a "simple" cable.
Just imagine being able to connect your SSD to an iMac by using a TB cable.
Just imagine being able to connect your Radeon 7xxx to an iMac by using a TB cable.
Too much potential, too many possibilities.
Where are the damn adapters?
