    Hey,

    I just got my new MBA with Thunderbolt. Unfortunately it doesn't show the "Target Disk Mode" option in System Preferences => Startup Disk. (Even if it's connected via those $50 thunderbolt cables).

    I have connected it to a iMac 2011 27". Any ideas would be great!

    I don't know maybe it is a bug, or Apple forgot to update the Preference Pane for Thunderbolt. But the "T" key always works.
