    Hi

    I am having some real troubles with Thunderbolt. I need these things to connect to my Macbook Pro (which has two Thunderbolt connections):

    - Apple Cinema Display (Mini-Display Port connector)
    - Apple Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 adaptor
    - Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet adaptor

    My issue, none of these things has a second Thunderbolt port to daisy chain or split the connection or anything.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    If you don't need gigabit ethernet you could use the usb -> ethernet adapter instead.

    I'd see if I couldn't sell the older Cinema Display and then buy the new thunderbolt version. Apple hardware usually has a pretty darn good resale market you might be shocked at how much you could get. Even if your out of pocket expense is 200 you might be able to lessen it by buying a refurb or a amazon warehouse version if and when they are available. I've had great success with buying items from both.
