    I'm trying to find USB 3.0 to Thunderbolt adapter/cable but there's nothing. Is there such thing?

    AFAIK none have been created or even proposed yet.

    The closest thing yet is Sonnet's Thunderbolt Expresscard/34 adapter, which can be used with their USB 3.0 Expresscard/34 module. It's pricey, however: USD 150 for the adapter and USD 70 for the module.

    I saw that, but you might as well buy a Thunderbolt drive.

    Usb 3.0 setup: $130 (for the 1tb drive)+ $150 (for the Thunderbolt Expresscard/34 adapter) + $70 (for the module) =$350

    Pay $50 more and get a cleaner and faster setup.
