Every little thing you need to learn about MacBook Pro 2011 ThunderBolt
The new MacBook Pro 2011 was released by Apple on Jobs' 56th birthday, February 24. Intel's Light Peak, an exotic I/O interface, has dominated the Macbook Pro 2011 grapevine. On the new MacBook Pro, the first lineup of products to utilize Light Peak, Intel's technology could be known as ThunderBolt.

About ThunderBolt velocity
Many are anxious about the brand new ThunderBolt technology available on the new MacBook Pro offered by Apple. This is the only difference between the old and brand new models. Formerly known as Intel's Light Peak, ThunderBolt has dual channel transfer rates as high as 10 gigabits per second. The USB 3.0 could be swapped out by this I/O technology according to Apple. According to Intel, it takes no time at all to transfer an HD movie up to 20 gigabits with ThunderBolt on the MacBook Pro. Less than 30 seconds is needed. Apple's MacBook Pro lineup involves 2 13-inchers, two 15-inchers and a 17-inch model. With all choices, prices go from $1,200 to $2,500. Intel’s Core i5 or i7 processors will be in all MacBooks in either dual or quad core versions.
ThunderBolt can make FireWire seem sluggish
Transfers are three times faster than FireWire with ThunderBolt technology although it's just as flexible. Thunderbolt devices could be interconnected to one another. That means, just like FireWire, MacBook Pros only need one port for Thunder Run. ThunderBolt also supplies power, eliminating the need for external power adapters for peripherals. Many functions could be done on one interface on ThunderBolt. The process figures out what the use is automatically. The technology will work as an interface for every little thing from external hard drives to display monitors. Optical cables were used for Intel’s Light Peak prototypes. Apple’s ThunderBolt has copper wires instead.
I/O paradigm shift originating from Apple
ThunderBolt devices are anticipated to start shipping this spring. Apple’s ThunderBolt will tap into the PCI interface which allows USB adapters and FireWire to be supported. The brand new MacBook Pro also comes with two USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 800 port. Apple is coming out ahead of the curve again with ThunderBolt, just like it was the first to abandon the floppy drive in 1998 and create a laptop, the MacBook Air, without an optical drive last year. ThunderBolt will likely be adopted in 2010 by PC manufacturers keeping up with Apple.
