At CES finally a few more thunderbolt devices were announced - some of them even appear to be ready and might be available soon. My current favorite is the seagate GoFlex adapter: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5345/seagates-goflex-thunderbolt-adapters At $100 + $50 for the thunderbolt cable it's still expensive for essentially not doing anything, but at least it allows you to upgrade existing GoFlex external HDDs to new speed levels. Finally, it will be available in a few weeks, which is nice. At least there will be some choice. Then, a few Thunderbolt more SSDs are announced. OCZ claims transfer rates up to 750 MB/s, which would be faster than internal SATA 3 SSDs.
