Belkin's Thunderbolt Express Dock Finally Gives You a Reason to Remember You Have Thunderbolt

Illustration for article titled Belkins Thunderbolt Express Dock Finally Gives You a Reason to Remember You Have Thunderbolt

Oh right! That thing on my MacBook Air that Apple made such a big deal about. Thunderbolt. It's extremely quick, and I'd like to use it! But where are the Thunderbolt accessories? But Belkin's got one to multiply your ports.

The Thunderbolt Express Dock serves up three USB ports (we're unsure if it's 2.0 or 3.0), gigabit ethernet, Firewire 800, and—ta da!—another Thunderport jack. It's not the most elegant looking port expander, but ethernet on your Air could be great for those who miss it, and whoever is still a Firewire devotee. As for now it's just on display at the Intel Developer Forum, so no details on cost or release. [9to5Mac]

It lacks so many ports I expect from a dock (esata, HDMI, USB3.0), has an uninspiring (iMac stand ripp-off) to cumbersome (DC IN in the front) design and probably costs $150-200 since all the early Thunderbolt adopters and "always-upgraders" just NEED some device to plug into their valuable Thunderbolt port.
