Does this anger you and make you want to throw your 1st gen at a wall at full speed right now? Because it... doesn't for me. But I think it's logical to take this route over DisplayPort. Still, as someone mentioned on the main thread, I could see this being confusing to people with a port that is brand new to begin with, blending USB-C accessories with something that might have what they believe to be TB capabilities. I dunno. Good stuff though overall. If I really want 2nd gen or up, I'll just fork over. I have such simple computing needs in general though that I might not be tempted. Glad I went 2011 air over 2010 for i5 over c2d, TB over DP, and backlit keyboard. TB I really enjoyed for USB 3 expandability when 2011 had only USB2 otherwise it breathed new life into my machine, but now that I have USB 3 with USB-C and my external portables are slow rpm anyways, I'm thinking whatever for right now. This could change as 4k+ displays become lower priced and mature at a point that doesn't make me feel guilty about splurging. This all also makes me feel that the release timing of rMB was uncoincidental with Intel's public unveiling of USB-C TB3.
