The one downside of the new MacBook range is their limited I/O, settling for a few powerful ports rather than every port you might need.
Now Belkin are about to ship their Thunderbolt Express Dock, which offers;
- Gigabit Ethernet
- 2 x Thunderbolt
- 1 x Firewire 800
- 3 x USB 3.0 ports
- Mic In
This is a great addition to a Thunderbolt based solution and should be selling for around $300 USD.
