    To anyone who has their MBP Retina. Can you tell me if it lists an ethernet adapter when the thunderbolt adapter is not plugged in. I was hoping that it actually does have an ethernet controller and the thunderbolt is just acting as a dongle rather than the controller actually being part of the dongle.

    Reason I am asking is I am kind of quite worried about drivers and support for it on other OS's. If someone has the adapter maybe you can show me what it shows in the system profiler?

    Good question. My guess would be it is in the dongle. Looking forward to hearing people with real experience with it...
