    I need my USB hub to terminate to a thunderbolt plug. Can I just get a cable for that or do I have to get one of those $200 things like this? http://store.apple.com/us/product/HGZP2VC/A/elgato-thunderbolt-2-dock?fnode=58

    That would work, I am using a caldigit thunderbolt station (1st version with thunderbolt 1) to add USB 3 to my USB 2 equipped 2011 iMac.

    A cheaper option would be the two new adapters from Kanex for under $80 on amazon, but be aware that they must be at the end of a thunderbolt chain.

    There are two versions, one had USB & ethernet, the other has USB & eSATA.
