Yeh, Thunderbolt is a new connection that allows transfer rates of 10GBPS 5 more than the long awaited USB3! Also the port is smaller and Intel say it will not only be for things like Thub Drives, External Drives, printers etc but also has a high enough bandwidth for HDTV, and ideal for transfering video files. The technology can transfer 10-20GB HD Video files in just 30 seconds! Also the technology can be used to replace internal pcie and sata ports!
Goodbye Nvidia! Apple have chosen to go with AMD for their graphics offering up to 3x more power than the previous generation.
Sandy Bridge is the latest CPU range from Intel and they are quick! Infact Apple states up to 2x faster than previous Macbook Pros!
