This thin, silvery box and accompanying cable might as well come with a top hat and wand for what it promises. An HD film downloaded in 30 seconds? A year’s worth of music synced in 10 minutes? Huh? Oh yes, it’s all the magic of Thunderbolt™ technology. Thunderbolt™ moves data on two bidirectional 10Gbps channels, which means that it’s 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and 12 times faster than FireWire 800. The Thunderbolt™ Cable ($39) does the actual magic, and this dock allows for you to use “a single connection to create high-speed, reliable transfers between your laptop and up to eight other devices, including FireWire, Ethernet, USB, and daisy chaining multiple Thunderbolt™ devices.”
