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.

+1 for excessive dildo.

I do think it's a pretty nifty idea, taking the concept of HDMI (simultaneous HD video and HD audio over a single port) and making it a universal bus like USB, but with much higher bandwidth. I just really hope all the other hardware manufacturers get a clue and start shipping Thunderbolt/Light Peak compatible devices.
