What about external graphics? The biggest benefit of Thunderbolt is being able to plug in an external graphics card to a MacBook Pro or any Mac that doesn't have a dedicated graphics card. There are some external thunderbolt graphics card enclosures from Sonnet and Magma. Villagetronic will be releasing their four generation Vidocks this summer for $99 which will use Thunderbolt by way of a bridge which will go from their new V2c interface.

Thanks for the update. After five months, there's very little available for consumers. Also, my MacBook 2011 with TB experiences the same video problems that are reported on Apple's forums with the 24" Apple Cinema Display - display experiences flickering, horizontal shifting, and blackouts.

So far, Thunderbolt is just a lot of hot air.
