    My iMac is a 2010 - the year before Thunderbolt was available (along with USB 3). Makes me want a new Mac.

    I put an SSD in my 2009 Macbook and it's like a 2012

    Best upgrade, but sadly Apple is trying to make upgrades difficult, luckily for us the people at OWC work hard to break the "official" rules and make upgrades available.

    Btw, for those PC users who want thunderbolt:

    and pci-like boards:

    Now whether Focusrite works with these is something one should ask their Support team.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I've been shopping around and hoping we'd start seeing more inexpensive Thunderbolt interfaces from some of the more well-known names like Focusrite.
