a how many units has Apple sold with Thunderbolt?
of those sales how many use Pro Tools?

I'm guessing 500 as best

Much, much higher. All iMacs and MacBooks have Thunderbolt, and school just started. There are thousands and thousands of students with Pro Tools 9 on their laptops with an unused Thunderbolt port.

My guess is that the only reason Avid hasn't announced a Thunderbolt product is because the Mac Pro's were delayed until next year.

Why do it when Magma already makes one? HDX in a Magma chassis= what you are asking for.

And if you think this will somehow be less expensive than just a PCIe card, you're crazy. Avid would have to design and build what amounts to an expansion chassis and you're going to pay them to do that. Think it through like a business person would.

over 4 million thunderbolt equipped MacBooks sold in the last quarter

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles..._3m_ipads.html

...not sure where 500 came from?

"Integrated HDX processor on board (no PCIe card or external enclosure required for HDX features)" = the HDX processing capability is built inside the OMNI-2 which is marketed as a HDX system cornerstone device free from traditional PCIe architecture / form factor requirements.

the future is inevitable

Near zero latency
Supports RTAS with PT10
Add 8X8 adat I/O

Does the PCIe card even work with this Thunderbolt setup yet, let alone a card we havn't even seen yet.

What are you guys talking about, there are already devices to connect PCIe cards via Thunderbolt.

http://www.sonnettech.com/product/th...olt/index.html

They are coming out with a 2 Card PCIe Thunderbolt device. You could use this.
