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.

Yeah, some desktop motherboards and laptops have a few USB ports that double as eSata. The ports are close enough that it's feasible, and takes up less room.

Check the links at the bottom for some examples. The first link from Gigabyte has pictures of it.
