Lightbulb Thunderbolt!

Hey Dave,

So... I'm excited about the new thunderbolt interface on the new Macs. Will they be bootable? Can't wait to get a new Mac and an external drive from OWC that boots off of thunderbolt...

Apple has said that, right now, Thunderbolt is not bootable.

I just spoke with Apple sales. The rep I spoke with assured me that Thunderbolt supports bootable drives.

The sales rep is being a bit misleading. While Thunderbolt may "support" bootable drives, you cannot boot from drives on Thunderbolt as of right now.
