This time round, the source stressed the new machines' support for Thunderbolt, Intel's ultra-high speed bus for which there are no peripherals and seemingly precious little vendor support outside Apple.

HP this week said it was focusing on USB 3.0 for the time being. Toshiba told us the same thing last week. ®
