    Thunderbolt (was Lightpeak) Arrives.

    Intel and Apple's new peripheral connection technology is here.

    One port for all compatible data and display devices is the plan.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    It's still going to take a couple years before we see Thunderbolt being implemented into audio devices.

    I doubt if it'll take a couple years, watching a demo of Thunderbolt streaming multiple videos from Final Cut Pro, it's immediately obvious that this is the technology to jump on. Video and audio devices are going to have a race to see who implements this technology first or those who wait and are left behind.

    I use a Macbook Pro, although I'll wait until next year before upgrading, but for users like myself who run a laptop and store their sample libraries on a separate drive this is a game changer. You can stream from an external drive with this technology faster than you can with any full size Mac Pro desktop.

    Maybe the most important advantage to this technology in the over all market is the ability to easily upgrade your laptop graphics with an external GPU. The graphics and gaming market.

    I was planning on an iMac or MacPro as my next DAW purchase but a Macbook Pro upgrade is now looking pretty competitive.
