Will there be a way to hook up all our eSATA drives to the new mac?

We either use an expansion chassis - Thunderbolt to PCIe card with an eSATA card installed. This already exists but is fairly expensive as you have to have a Thunderbolt aware eSATA card and most cards aren't. And the expander boxes are not cheap either.

The other fix, which we have been working on, is a Thunderbolt card for the Burly. We have a couple sources that we are finally working on.

Good, what's the target price range for the 2d option do you think? This would be 2, 4 or 6 drive bay, something like that?
