Got a new Mac with the brand new Thunderbolt port but no accessories to connect to it? The only accessories out now for the Thunderbolt port would be the $999 Apple Thunderbolt Display, a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor, or those pricey Thunderbolt External Hard Drives. Don’t you just wish you could do more with that Thunderbolt port? That’s where Belkin’s Thunderbolt Express Dock comes in. Announced at CES 2012, this dock packs 3 USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire 800 port, HDMI port, Gigabit Ethernet jack, 3.5mm audio jack, and a pair of Thunderbolt ports capable of daisy chaining. This will be something that I’ll definitely get for my Macbook Air 11” which only has 2 lonely USB ports. As much as I would want this, the price of $299 is quite expensive for this dock.
