Just a random thought... I know the thunderbolt protocol is expensive/less common (than USB3), but it does offer high performance. Wouldn't it be cool if the manufacturers could come up with thunderbolt SSD sticks that can just be used as a boot drive, without all the clutter of a big chunky SSD 'drive'. Forget the orange boxes and DIY combo with random SSD adaptors (well, and a $39 thunderbolt canle). This neat solution could be a game changer. Intel has even made a prototype of 128GB SSD stick.http://www.myce.com/news/thunderbolt-stick-makes-usb-flash-drive-look-bad-speed-wise-67430/ I wouldn't mind paying if it could revive my old iMc with a 5400 rpm HDD.
