Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock

Another one of those cool things that owners of older iMacs will look upon with envy … Unfortunately my 2010 iMac does not have a thunderbolt port, so I can’t add this swanky hub with all its expansion possibility. Check the bullet points:

  • Connect 8 separate devices to your laptop through a single Thunderbolt cable (Cable sold separately). Compatible with Thunderbolt 2 Technology
  • 1 Thunderbolt port to connect to a laptop or Thunderbolt devices (Daisy-chain up to 5 devices through one port)
  • 1 Gigabit Ethernet port
  • 1 FireWire 800 port
  • 1 3.5mm Headphone Output jack and 1 3.5mm Audio Input Jack
  • 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and 12 times faster than FireWire 800
  • 3 USB 3.0 ports (data transfer at 2.Gbps max)
  • Cable-management channel

Yah, it isn’t a cheap undertaking – 150 bucks or so at Amazon, I didn’t see it cheaper anywhere else though. Damn swanky looking with all those ports (and you can use your old firewire drives!! wooohoo)
