Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock
Belkin offers some connectivity lovin' for Thunderbolt-equipped computers

Intel and Apple has been working together on the Light Peak interface, and Apple has introduced the standard as “Thunderbolt” on its latest array of MacBook Air, MacBook Pros, iMacs, and Mac mini products. 

If you can get past the $50 cables that are required for connecting peripherals to your computer, Light Peak actually shows a lot of promise as witnessed by Sony’s implementation on the VAIO Z’s Power Media Dock

Belkin never misses an opportunity to jump into the latest craze with computer accessories, and the company was showing off its new Thunderbolt Express Dock today at IDF. Tucked away at the bottom of a display case, and overshadowed by some more prominent offerings from Pegasus was the tiny little dock.

The Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock features three USB ports, a Thunderbolt port for daisy chaining, a Firewire port, and a GbE port. This is basically the same port setup that’s found on the new 27” Apple Thunderbolt Display

For Apple users looking for expanded port offerings via the Thunderbolt port and don’t want to pay $999 for the functionality, the Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock will come in handy. We don’t have any pricing or availability for the dock yet, but we can be sure that it won’t cost anywhere near $999.

Now, will Belkin include a Thunderbolt cable to hook the dock up to your computer instead of making you have to pay an extra $50?

"What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders." -- Michael Dell, after being asked what to do with Apple Computer in 1997
