Intel Apple has just updated its line of MacBook Pros. Usually, this isn't anything to get particularly excited about, but this time around, they've got a genuine treat: Thunderbolt. Apple is the first to use this new connection technology, developed at Intel and believed to be the copper version of Lightpeak. It's pretty impressive.

You seem to have missed the point. Using the correct cables (or adapters), thunderbolt is (or will be in the future) compatible with USB (including USB 3.0), Firewire, SATA, SCSI, Fibre Channel, HDMI, DVI, VGA, Ethernet and even PCIe. One port to rule them all, just select the correct cable.
